AND AFTER MANY DAYS by JOWHOR ILE – Book Summary

‘…a novel of childhood, of the delicate, complex balance of power and love between siblings; the unique ecosystems of a family. It is also a portrait of a society, as the old world gives way to a new status quo. A novel of quiet, devastating force, AND AFTER MANY DAYS holds at its centre a profound story of life, loss and becoming.’ From the book cover
