Migrants, refugees, and displaced persons are the focus of Meron Hadero’s debut, who in 2021 became the first Ethiopian writer to receive the Caine Prize for African Writing. The short story collection won the Restless Book Prize for New Immigrant Fiction before it was even published. The jury stated, »With tremendous power and wonderful subtlety, Meron Hadero grants us access to the inner worlds of people at moments when everything is at stake«.
