Synopsis

'Compelling . . . it should delight anyone looking for a thoughtful, witty successor to Sally Rooney' Observer



'Stunning' Olivia Laing



'This novel is a triumph' Musa Okwonga



'I liked Stubborn Archivist very very much' Claire-Louise Bennett



'A talent to watch' Nikesh Shukla



When your mother considers another country home, it's hard to know where you belong. When the people you live among can't pronounce your name, it's hard to know exactly who you are. And when your body no longer feels like your own, it's hard to understand your place in the world.



This is a novel of growing up between cultures, of finding your space within them and of learning to live in a traumatized body. Our stubborn archivist tells her story through history, through family conversations, through the eyes of her mother, her grandmother and her aunt and slowly she begins to emerge into the world, defining her own sense of identity.
