Hiding in Plain Sight

(2014)
A novel by

 
A bold new novel that "augments a body of work worthy of a Nobel Prize" (Kirkus Reviews), from the internationally acclaimed author of Crossbones

Nuruddin Farah - "the most important African novelist to emerge in the past twenty-five years" (The New York Review of Books) - returns with a provocative, unforgettable tale about family, freedom, and loyalty. A departure in theme and setting, Hiding in Plain Sight is a profound exploration of the tensions between liberty and obligation, the ways in which gender and sexual orientation define us, and the unintended consequences of the secrets we keep.

When Bella, a fashion photographer living in Rome, learns of her beloved half-brother's murder, she travels to Nairobi to care for her niece and nephew. But when their mother resurfaces, reasserting her maternal rights and bringing with her a gale of chaos and confusion that mirrors the deepening political instability in the region, Bella must decide how far she will go to obey the call of sisterly responsibility.
