Namwali Serpell: Familiar Mysteries

An English Professor at Harvard, Namwali Serpell won a flurry of awards for her debut novel The Old Drift, before she herself received a prestigious Windham-Campbell Prize. Needless to say, her new novel The Furrows is eagerly-awaited. The book’s protagonist, Cassandra, loses her brother in an accident as a child. Later, as an adult, she meets a man whom she seems to recognise. Today, Serpell discusses doppelgängers, double consciousness and the uncanny effects of grief with Tomiwa Folorunso.

Namwali Serpell is appearing remotely.
