Join this Book Club with Dr Rebekah Bale from the Department of English Language and Literature
to explore the short story 'The Sack' written by an American-Zambian author and critic, Namwali Serpell.
Her first novel, The Old Drift (2019) is a historical novel with bits of science-fiction thrown in!
Her second novel, The Furrows (2022) is the story of a tragic death and its terrifying aftermath.
We're reading 'The Sack', a short story which won the Caine Prize for African Fiction in 2015
and launched Serpell into the literary world.
