Black Mamba Boy by Nadifa Mohamed

'A first novel of assured elegance and beauty ... Watch out for this one in the prize season; it’s a stunning debut'
The Times 

'Just as Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Half of a Yellow Sun drew out the little documented dramas of the Biafran war, Mohamed describes an East Africa under Mussolini's rule ... an accomplished first novel'
