Sold Out Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi & Geovani Martins

Migrants and Misfits

Manchester-based Ugandan author Jennifer Nansubuga Makumbi and Brazilian writer Geovani Martins live half a globe apart, but their searing short story collections both centre on being an outsider. Makumbi’s Manchester Happened features moving stories of Ugandans living in England, while Martins’s The Sun On My Head is set amid the inequalities of a notorious Brazilian favela. Chaired by director of Rio de Janeiro’s FLUPP literary festival, Julio Ludemir.
