A picture from Nadia Owusu’s childhood. She and her sister were left alone, with their stepmother.

When Nadia Owusu was two years old her mother abandoned her and her baby sister and fled from Tanzania back to the US. When she was thirteen her beloved Ghanaian fatherdied of cancer. She and her sister were left alone, with a stepmother they didn’t like, adrift. 

Published by Jonathan Ball, Aftershocks is the account of how she hauled herself out of the wreckage. It is the intimate story behind the news of immigration and division dominating contemporary politics. Nadia Owusu’s astonishingly moving and incredibly timely memoir is a nuanced portrait of globalisation from the inside in a fractured world in crisis. In this excerpt she surveys her colonial mentality.
