Event Details

Book launch with author Nuruddin Farah, chaired by Richard Dowden (Director, RAS)

Nuruddin Farah is one of Africa’s most highly acclaimed international writers and a key voice from contemporary Somalia. In his new novel, Crossbones, Jeebleh returns to Mogadishu with his journalist son-in-law Malik. Meanwhile, Jeebleh’s brother, Ahl, searches for his stepson in Puntland – the region notorious as a pirates’ base. What they find is a country ruled by an uneasy calm between one battle and the next. Crossbones is a fascinating look at individuals caught in the maw of zealotry, profiteering and political conflict.
