NoViolet Bulawayo

The first Black African woman and Zimbabwean to be shortlisted for the prestigious Man Booker Prize, NoViolet Bulawayo made a splash with her debut novel We Need New Names. "Being an immigrant myself, and having met a lot of immigrants, I'm struck by this experience of transition, something that can be hard to the extent of affecting your relationship to the new country,” said Bulawayo in an interview.
