Nadifa Mohamed Book and Novel

Nadifa Mohamed - Author

Nadifa Mohamed was born in Hargeisa in 1981 while Somalia was falling deeper into dictatorship. In 1986 she moved to London with her family in what she thought was a temporary move but a couple of years later it became permanent as war broke out in Somalia. She was educated in London and went to Oxford to study History and Politics and she finally returned to Hargeisa, now in the new Republic of Somaliland, in 2008. She lives in London and is currently working on her second novel.

If you like Nadifa Mohamed you might also like to read books by Sahar Delijani, Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie and Khaled Hosseini.
