Lesley Lokko


Scotland (b.1964)

After various careers (cocktail waitress, kibbutz worker and office manager amongst others), Lesley Lokko went back to university at the age of 26 and trained as an architect. Lesley now divides her time between Accra and Hackney, with the odd couple of months spent in a wee cottage outside Edinburgh where she writes her novels.
