We Need New Names
A NovelBook - 2013
The unflinching and powerful story of a young girl's journey out of Zimbabwe to America. Darling is only ten-years-old and yet she must navigate a fragile and violent world in Zimbabwe. But Darling has a chance to escape to America where she has an aunt. She travels to this new land in search of America's famous abundance only to find that her options as an immigrant are perilously few. NoViolent Bulaway's exciting literary debut calls to mind the great storytellers of displacement and arrival who have come before her - from Zadie Smith to Monica Ali to J.M. Coetzee - while she tells a vivid, raw story all her own.
