Namwali Serpell: The Furrows

MWF Digital

One of the world’s most exciting contemporary novelists, Zambian author Namwali Serpell follows her award-winning debut, The Old Drift, with a beautiful and bold meditation on memory and mourning, The Furrows. Blurring the line between our dreams and waking lives, the story captures the ongoing and unsettling experience of grief, twisting unexpectedly into a daring tale about double consciousness, our slippery reality and Black identity. Join Serpell as she introduces her keenly awaited release to audiences, in conversation with Eugen Bacon.

Online | Available on demand from 8 September
