Abdulrazak Gurnah in conversation with Maaza Mengiste

In his intergenerational saga of war and love at the dawn of the 20th century, the Nobel laureate tells the story of people struggling to maintain their integrity in the shadow of the colonial world order. “Like its predecessors, this is a novel that demands to be read and reread, for its humour, generosity of spirit and clear-sighted vision of the infinite contradictions of human nature.” [Evening Standard]
