Beginning in a colonial settlement and ending with a social-technological revolution in a Zambia of the near future, Namwali Serpell’s debut novel The Old Drift weaves ideas and experiences of colonialism, the HIV crisis, the Zambian Space Programme and political revolution.

Following three generations of three families, her fierce and beautiful writing is resonant of writers such as Gabriel García Márquez. Namwali, who is a Professor of English at UC Berkley, speaks with Whiti Hereaka about the decade of work behind her much-acclaimed novel.
