Namwali Serpell’s THE OLD DRIFT

This amazing novel is set in Zambia over two centuries and follows three generations from three families whose lives become coiled together. Namwali Serpell’s debut is not just genre defying but genre encompassing; part-fairy tale, part-historical epic, it is a tragic love story and cutting edge science fiction. This book literally has it all. With echoes of David Mitchell’s Cloud Atlas and Richard Powers’ The Overstory this sweeping, drifting story is a perfect commentary on the 21st Century and all its failings including those still to come.
