Laleh Khadivi’s timely coming-of-age novel, A Good Country tracks the progression of a fourteen-year-old son of Iranian immigrants from straight-A student, to happy-go-lucky stoner, to religious radical. Set across a backdrop of refugee migration that spans Africa, America and Australia, Harriet Levin Millan‘s How Fast Can You Run is the inspiring story of Michael Majok Kuch and his journey to find his mother. Set in the shadow of Kenya’s independence from Great Britain, Dr. Peter Kimani‘s Dance of the Jakaranda reimagines the special circumstances that brought black, brown and white men together to lay the railroad that heralded the birth of the nation.
