A novel shortlisted for the 2021 Booker Prize is now available in the United States.

Nadifa Mohamed's The Fortune Men — which came out in all formats except paperback yesterday — is a historical-fiction tale whose themes resonate today.

The story of a Somali sailor arrested for and convicted of a crime he didn't commit is based on a historical case from 1952 in Cardiff, Wales.

You can read an excerpt of The Fortune Men at Literary Hub.
