We Are All Birds of Uganda on the radio

We Are All Birds of Uganda, the debut novel by Hafsa Zayyan, joint-winner of Stormzy’s #Merky Books New Writers’ Prize, has been abridged for BBC Radio 4. Zayyan’s novel focuses on Sameer, a twenty-six-year-old Cambridge graduate and a rising star at his London law firm. Sameer has a swanky penthouse flat in Clerkenwell in central London, and his life appears to be ideal. His feet are kept firmly on the ground by two no-nonsense old school mates who follow him to the capital from their hometown, Leicester. The novel is abridged by Patricia Cumper for broadcast on BBC Radio 4’s Book at Bedtime.
