'Zimbabwean-American author NoViolet Bulawayo is visiting Melbourne to speak about her critically acclaimed, breathtaking first novel We Need New Names. Shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize, the book follows the life of ten-year-old Darling, in Bulawayo's native Zimbabwe, and Darling's subsequent migration to the United States as a teenager. We're sitting on stage together, on a panel at the Melbourne Writers Festival titled 'Writing Voice'. I'm here by virtue of my debut book of fiction, the African diaspora short-story collection Foreign Soil.' (Introduction)
