Where do you find home? In Elaine Castillo’s America Is Not the Heart, it’s in food, community, friendship and love, as Hero rebuilds her life in a new country. In Michael Donkor’s cross-continental Hold, it’s in an unexpected city and a surprising kinship, as Ghanian Belinda moves to London to impose order on sullen and wayward Amma. While for Karl and Abu, in Olumide Popoola’s When We Speak of Nothing, it’s in learning who you are and finding acceptance – whether that’s in the streets of London or Port Harcourt.
