An innovative hybrid of auto-fiction, crime fiction and critical race memoir, this multi-layered yet compulsively readable novel is inspired by the author´s real and extended experience of serious racial harassment, as well as exploring her search for justice and for love Tesya has reasons to feel hopeful after leaving her last job, where she was subjected to a series of anonymous hate crimes. Now she is back home in London to start a new lecturing position, and has begun an exciting, if tumultuous, love affair with the enigmatic Holly. But this idyllic new start quickly sours. Tesya finds herself victimized again at work by an unknown assailant, who subjects her to an insidious, sustained race hate crime. As her paranoia mounts, Tesya finds herself yearning for the most elemental of desires: love, acceptance, and sanctuary. Her assailant, meanwhile, is recording his manifesto and plotting his next steps. Inspired by the author's personal experiences of hate crime and bookended with essays which contextualize the story within a lifetime of microaggressions, Lessons in Love and Other Crimes is a heartbreaking, hopeful, and compulsively readable novel about the most quotidian of crimes.

There is a voice in the wildness of your soul. Do you know it? Have you heard it? It cries out like a banshee to awaken you in the dark solitude of a seemingly endless night. It cries out for belonging and meaning. It passionately petitions the darkest corners of your soul to allow the light of love to shine there again and guide you home. It is with this voice that I have written this book of poems. Therefore, it is with this voice I invite you to read them and speak them aloud so that our voices may be joined together as one that we might passionately petition the darkness together for the light of love to guide all of us home.
