Idza Luhumyo: Five Years Next Sunday

Winner of the 2022 Caine Prize for African Writing, this short story is about a young woman with supernatural abilities: If she cuts her hair, it starts to rain. But there is a reason why there has been a drought for almost five years … »A triumph of imagination!« said the jury. Idza Luhumyo reads an excerpt from the story and talks about working on her debut novel, which negotiates themes of class, identity, and love.

Hosted by Dominique Haensell.
