JIAS wishes to congratulate NoViolet Bulawayo, a 2020 Writing Fellow, who has made it on the longlist along with 13 other writers for this year’s Booker Prize.
Bulawayo is listed for Glory, which is narrated by a chorus of animals and inspired by George Orwell’s Animal Farm. A response to the fall of Robert Mugabe, it describes a coup that ousts Old Horse as leader after 40 years in power, alongside his despised wife, a donkey named Marvellous.
