From Somali Italian novelist Igiaba Scego, Adua is set in Italy and spans the years from pre-WW11 to present day as its protagonist Adua, a Somali who immigrated to Italy, reflects on her life as she considers whether to return to Somalia after the end of the Somalian civil war.

It's a reflection on Adua and her father's lives which have been affected by colonialism, racism and immigration. This is a novel rich in detail and history, from independent publisher Jacaranda Books, whose ethos is to publish "ground-breaking writing with a dedication to creating space on the bookshelf for diverse ideas and writers." An ethos we are on-board with at Destination Books!
