Nadifa Mohamed’s first novel, Black Mamba Boy, won her the Betty Trask Award and earned her a place as one of Granta’s Best Young British Novelists. Her hotly-anticipated new novel The Orchard of Lost Souls shows the Somalian civil war through the eyes of a nine year old girl, a widow and a soldier, all told in Mohamed’s characteristic sensitive and pulsing prose. Her work deftly interweaves the influences of the Western canon and the African tradition of the griot storyteller. Come and discover a writer who bridges cultures and continents with a stroke of the pen.
