JENNIFER NANSUBUGA MAKUMBI & NOVUYO ROSA TSHUMA, EDINBURGH BOOK FESTIVAL

 

Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi’s debut novel Kintu, an epic tale that reimagines Uganda’s history through the cursed bloodline of the Kintu clan, has been described as ‘the most important book to come out of Uganda for half a century’. House of Stone is Novuyo Rosa Tshuma’s smart, inventive and brave retelling of the modern history of Zimbabwe that has been described as an "extraordinary achievement that manages to sum up not only Zimbabwean history, but all of African colonial history." The authors join Rosemary Burnett to discuss their impressive stories.
