The Go-Between: A Memoir of Growing Up Between Different Worlds [9781786893529]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review
The son of Afghan parents, Osman Yousefzada was raised in post-industrial Birmingham. Osman's father was a carpenter, and his mother, to help make ends meet, took up sewing and became a seamstress. Women from Indian-East African, Israeli, Shia and Afghan communities came together in the Yousefzada household to have clothes made and mended by his mother. Osman learned the craft at her knee and became enraptured by what was deemed a woman's job, and increasingly found himself at odds with the highly patriarchal culture he grew up in. Whether secretly bringing his sister books and magazines from the local library, lusting after forbidden jelly in the local shop, or chatting to the area's prostitutes, Osman quietly weaved in and out of different spheres. But no one can be a go-between forever, and Osman's is a story of finding your own way, even if it means turning your back on the world you know.
AUTHOR: Osman Yousefzada was born in Birmingham. He studied anthropology at SOAS, and fashion at Central Saint Martins. He later went on to do a Masters at Cambridge. As well as being nominated for various fashion awards, including the prestigious British Fashion Council NEWGEN award for three consecutive seasons, Osman has been nominated for the Annual Designs of the Year Award at the Design Museum, and for a Frieze Art Award. He curates an annual collaborative journal, The Collective, a cross-disciplinary publication featuring artists, writers and other creatives. The Osman clothing line is sold internationally, and is worn by celebrities including Beyonce, Lupita Nyong'o, Thandie Newton, Gwen Stefani, Emma Watson, Freida Pinto and many more.
