Congratulations to Yvonne Adhiambo Owuor and her novel The Dragonfly Sea, which is published today in hardback in the UK!
This is a magical, sea-saturated, coming-of-age novel that transports readers from Kenya to China and Turkey, from the award-winning author of Dust. It’s already garnering great praise:
‘One of the most unforgettable books I have read in the last few years … What a writer! What a thinker! What a woman!’
‘The Dragonfly Sea transported me at a time I really wanted to be transported. Lyrical, compassionate, and deeply original, it has stayed with me, and is the novel I have most enjoyed this year.’
SATHNAM SANGHERA, AUTHOR OF EMPIRELAND AND THE BOY IN THE TOPKNOT
