 READ THE NOVEL THAT INSPIRED THE FILM PRECIOUS.

This 25th Anniversary Edition includes a new preface from Tayari Jones, and a new afterword by the author. This is the story of Precious Jones, a sixteen year old illiterate black girl who has never been out of Harlem. She is pregnant by her own father for the second time, and kicked out of school. Placed in an alternative teaching programme, she learns to read and write. This is Precious's diary, in which she honestly records her relationships and her life.

'Has all the power and vehemence of rap... brutal in its defence of the vulnerable' Independent.

'Part wishful prayer, part manifesto, mingling poetry and humour... splendid, turbulent, bracing language... it's music takes you over, its story grips... A voice to remember' Scotland on Sunday.

'Harrowing yet hilarious... packs a powerful punch' Guardian.
