Author(s): Robyn Travis
Mama Can’t Raise No Man is Robyn Travis’ debut novel and unfolds through a series of letters between a colorful cast of characters and the main protagonist, Duane, who despite his efforts to turn his life around, once again finds himself in prison. This time it’s on charges of intent to supply drugs and domestic violence, but things are not as clear-cut as they seem.
Mama Can’t Raise No Man is a unique and eye-opening exploration of black masculinity. Brimming with intelligent and thought provoking ideas, it cleverly challenges different definitions of manhood, whilst remaining an engaging, witty and at times laugh-out-loud-funny novel.
Robyn is author of Prisoner to the Streets and Mama Can’t Raise No Man which had a huge impact on publication and garnered much interest across a wide readership. The book launched to a packed out Hackney Empire and quickly sold out. Robyn is a passionate speaker and advocate for young people and regularly uses his own life experiences to try and teach, educate, and inspire younger generations.
