Abdulrazak Gurnah, AFTERLIVES & R.F. Kuang, BABEL

This week, we talk about two novels about colonialism, both from the point of view of the colonized.

First, we are honored to talk with the 2021 winner of the Nobel Prize for Literature, Abdulrazak Gurnah about his novel Afterlives, just published in the United States by Penguin Random House.

Then R.F. Kuang tells us about her fantasy/slash/alternate history novel, Babel, Or The Necessity of Violence: An Arcane History of the Oxford Translator’s Revolution.
