Winner of the Edward Stanford Prize for Fiction with a Sense of Place 2019 Shortlisted for the Dylan Thomas Prize 2019 Shortlisted for the Orwell Prize 2019 Longlisted for the Rathbones Folio Prize 2019 __________ ‘Extraordinary’ Guardian __________ Bukhosi has gone missing. His father Abed and his mother Agnes cling to the hope that he has run away rather than been murdered by government thugs. Only the lodger seems to have any idea… Zamani has lived in the spare room for years now. Quiet polite well-read and well-heeled he’s almost part of the family – but almost isn’t quite good enough for Zamani. Cajoling coaxing and coercing Abed and Agnes into revealing their sometimes tender often brutal life stories Zamani aims to steep himself in borrowed family history so that he can fully inherit and inhabit its uncertain future.
