Alys Conran & Sheena Kalayil

Looking back over my shoulder

Remembering and reassessing our past link the novels by these two accomplished authors. Alys Conran’s first, Pigeon, won the Wales Book of the Year Award 2017 and was shortlisted for the International Dylan Thomas Prize. Her latest, Dignity, beautifully captures notions of race and belonging in imperial and modern Britain through the lives of three women. Sheena Kalayil, winner of the Writers' Guild Award for Best First Novel, discusses her third novel The Wild Wind, retracing a family’s battle through the political turmoil of war-torn Zambia.
