Jason Donald & Jenny Erpenbeck

Helping Hand

Two novels illuminate how we treat the dispossessed. Jason Donald's Dalila flees a violent past in Kenya, only to discover that what she faces in London may be just as brutal. In Go, Went, Gone by Jenny Erpenbeck, winner of the 2015 Independent Foreign Fiction Prize, a retired academic befriends some African migrants only to discover that his country doesn't really want the people he has connected with to ever find a home.
