Thrilled to be a recipient of an Anisfield-Wolf Book Award for Fiction!
I will be in Cleveland for the Award Ceremony on the 12th and for a Cuyahoga Public Library event on the 11th. Details here on my events page.
I previously posted that Hogarth would be publishing Neverhome in the UK. In fact, it is Chatto. Couldn’t be happier!
An essay I wrote, “A Bottle of Water in Brazzaville”, is in today’s New York Times Opinionator .
Delighted that my next novel, Neverhome, will be published in the States by Little Brown and Co. Chatto will publish it in the UK. Stayed tune for news about foreign rights, including Germany, Italy and France.
