W&N FICTION JULY

Kei Miller The Last Warner Woman ‘[Kei Miller is] a cross between Andrea Levy and Alexander McCall Smith, but probably a better writer than either’ Daily Mail Adamine Bustamante is born in Jamaica, in one of the island’s last leper colonies. When she goes to a Revivalist Church, she discovers her gift of ‘warning’. But no one has warned Adamine that when she migrates to England, her prophecies of hurricanes and earthquakes will see her banished to a mental hospital. Lyrical and spellbinding, this is a story about magic and migration, stories and story-telling. Kei Miller was born in Jamaica. His first collection of stories was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize for Best First Book, and his first novel, The Same Earth, was published to great critical acclaim. He lives in Glasgow.
