Riambel (signed edition)

by Priya Hein

Fifteen-year-old Noemi has no choice but to leave school and work in the house of the wealthy De Grandbourg family. Just across the road from the slums where she grew up, she encounters a world that is starkly different from her own ­– yet one which would have been all too familiar to her ancestors.

‘Priya Hein has given us a book that should be essential reading for all those who care about our history, in particular the devastating legacy of slavery . . . She tells this harrowing story in the most beautiful prose, luminous and musical, drawing in the reader before hitting them hard with the reality of her young narrator’s life.’

Ananda Devi, author of Eve Out of Her Ruins

Banzeiro Òkòtó: The Amazon as the Centre of the World

By Eliane Brum, translated by Diane Whitty

Eliane Brum recounts her move from São Paulo to Altamira, a city along the Xingu River that has been devastated by the construction of one of the largest dams in the world. Brum seeks to ‘reforest’ herself while building relationships with forest peoples who carry both the scars and the resistance of the forest in their bodies.

Burnt Eucalyptus Wood: On Origins, Language and Identity

by Ennatu Domingo

Torn between forgetting and remembering, Ennatu Domingo explores the dilemma of international adoptees and migrant children and their quest for belonging in a book destined to be a classic of its genre.

‘It is at once a love story and a battle cry, an elegy and an anthem. It is compulsive reading, bursting with tenderness while remaining uncompromising in its assessments and realisations.’

Maaza Mengiste, author of The Shadow King, shortlisted for the 2020 Booker Prize

Charleston: Race, Water & the Coming Storm

by Susan Crawford

An unflinching look at Charleston, a beautiful, endangered port city, founded by English settlers in 1669 as a hub of the sugar and slave trades, which now, as the waters rise, stands at the intersection of climate and race.

‘It’s a book that I wish every community could have for facing economic inequality, racial injustice and climate change.’

‘A rousing and impassioned plea for climate sanity.

A howl of grief and a rallying cry.’
