WINNER OF THE INTERNATIONAL DUBLIN LITERARY AWARD 2017 A finalist
for the Man Booker International Prize 2016 The brilliant new novel
from the winner of the Independent Foreign Fiction Prize. On the
eve of Angolan independence, Ludo bricks herself into her
apartment, where she will remain for the next thirty years. She
lives off vegetables and pigeons, burns her furniture and books to
stay alive and keeps herself busy by writing her story on the walls
of her home. The outside world slowly seeps into Ludo's life
through snippets on the radio, voices from next door, glimpses of a
man fleeing his pursuers and a note attached to a bird's foot.
Until one day she meets Sabalu, a young boy from the street who
climbs up to her terrace.
