For the first time since his Nobel Prize victory, Abdulrazak Gurnah has released a novel in the United States.
Afterlives came out in the United Kingdom in 2020 (the year before Gurnah won the Nobel Prize for Literature) and officially landed on US shelves today.
Literary Hub has an excerpt of Afterlives, a multigenerational novel set in Eastern Africa in the wake of German colonization.
And NPR's Scott Simon has an interview with Gurnah about the process of writing this novel ... and the joys of being able to call oneself a Nobel laureate.
