Novel Writers: Michael Donkor

Hold

Michael Donkor
Thu 26 September 2019,

Each month we invite a debut novelist to read from and talk about their work in an informal setting. Prior knowledge of the text is not essential. Topics of discussion include theme, structure, inspiration and the craft of writing. These sessions are a great way to discover new writing talent and unique books.

Moving between Ghana and London, Michael Donkor’s Hold is an intimate, powerful coming-of-age novel. It’s a story of friendship and family, shame and forgiveness; of learning what we should cling to, and when we need to let go.

An arresting and textured novel…He has a gift for succinct, piercing description.
