Shortlisted for the Hearst Big Book Awards 2019
An ambitious and assured collection of short stories from the internationally acclaimed author of Kintu
If there's one thing the characters in Jennifer Makumbi's stories know, it's how to field an uncomfortable question.
'Let me buy you a cup of tea...what are you doing in England?'
'Do these children of yours speak any Luganda?'
'Did you know that man Idi Amin?'
But perhaps the most difficult question of all is the one they ask themselves: 'You mean this is England?'
Told with empathy, humour and compassion, these vibrant, kaleidoscopic stories re-imagine the journey of Ugandans who choose to make England their home. Weaving between Manchester and Kampala, this dazzling collection will captivate anyone who has ever wondered what it means to truly belong.

As a Ugandan, I could recognise and identify with some of the stories but was disappointed with the pronunciation of the luganda words. and even worse to learn it was Ugandan ladies who narrated the story.. but otherwise a great read.
