Okwiri Oduor: Things They Lost

German Book Premiere

Twelve-year-old Ayosa lives alone in a haunted house on the edge of the village. Her relationship with her mother is characterized by longing and absence. She can see the past and observes the lives of her ancestors – and finally she finds a friend. Oduor’s debut is interwoven with Kenyan mythology. Her »ability to tap into a depth and range of feeling is uncanny. … A surreal novel that is ominous and mysterious, with a strong, young, female voice at the centre« (Guardian).

With Okwiri Oduor

Moderated by Amanda DeMarco
