Namwali Serpell’s THE FURROWS was featured on TIME’s list of “The 100 Must-Read Books of 2022.” Annabel Gutterman writes: “In her follow-up to her 2019 debut THE OLD DRIFT, Namwali Serpell unravels a haunting narrative full of mystery. But it’s Serpell’s unsparing depiction of C’s grief that makes THE FURROWS so affecting. As C is forced to relive the most traumatic moment of her life, over and over again, Serpell creates a wrenching portrait of a woman reckoning with loss.” The book was also featured on best-of lists from Kirkus and BookPage, the latter of which praises: “Serpell’s award-winning debut novel, THE OLD DRIFT, was a genre-defying epic about three generations of Zambian families, and her purposely disconcerting follow-up will reinforce readers’ appreciation of her daring experimentation and keen talent.” Hogarth published the novel on September 27, 2022.
