Official Website

The characters in the novels of Tina Makereti (The Imaginary Lives of James Pōneke) and Namwali Serpell (The Old Drift) call to us, with extraordinarily vivid voices, from histories of colonisation and British Imperialism.

Their stories reflect the influence and impact of the past upon our lives today and tomorrow. The authors talk to Gem Wilder about what it takes to craft fictional lives who show us the very real and connected narratives of culture, class and race.
