Join CLA, the Department of English, and the Loft Literary Center in celebrating the paperback release of Nuruddin Farah's latest novel Crossbones. Born in 1945 in Baidoa, Somalia, Nuruddin Farah is the author of eleven novels, a nonfiction book, and numerous articles and stories in English; his work has been translated into more than 20 languages. The first novel in his dictatorship trilogy, Sweet and Sour Milk, won the English-Speaking Union Literary Prize in 1980, and in 1998, he was given the Neustadt International Prize for Literature. He went into exile in the 1970s and has lived, taught, and written in many African countries. He currently resides in Capetown, South Africa. Having dealt with dictatorship, breakdown, and exile in earlier works, Farah has begun in his current trilogy (Links, Knots, and Crossbones) to imagine possible modes of a return to Somalia. Farah is the 2010-12 CLA Winton Chair, hosted by English.
