Exploring tensions and transitions of lives in-between youthful folly and precarious adulthoods, Kenyan writer Billy Kahora celebrates and reflects on the launch of his anticipated collection of short stories The Cape Cod Bicycle War with Ellah Wakatama Allfrey.

Described by Namwali Serpell as ‘a wondrous collection’ which immerses us in ‘a millenial Kenya we’ve never seen in fiction before’, this collection of eleven short stories brings together stories that have already received critical acclaim, including The Gorilla’s Apprentice (shortlisted for The Caine Prize for African Writing in 2012) with previously unpublished stories set across Kenya, South Africa and the US.

Africa Writes – Bristol 2019 is brought to you by the Royal African Society and Saseni!, and supported by Arts Council England, the Bristol Cultural Development Partnership, University of Bristol and University of Exeter.
