Read full description of the books:

As its title suggests, Blue Sunflower Startle is jolting and often disorienting. Ladha’s language surprises, as in “little mounds of jasmine beds, gentle as babies’ graves.” The novel opens in Tanzania in 1964, when the unnamed narrator is six years old. Among a dizzying plurality of ethnicities, religions and languages, she struggles to construct a coherent identity. ‘Home’ for these characters is not so much a place as an emotion, often triggered by food. Indeed, Ladha’s most common metaphors are culinary; she consistently renders food a symbol of comfort and nostalgia: “Puddings assert home” and “Home is where kebabs are served with coriander chutney.”
