Promotional Information

Set in Uganda in 1972, an extraordinarily moving debut that tells the story of one family's escape, when Amin forces them to leave: a story of loss and separation, but also ultimately of hope.

About the Author

Neema Shah's parents and grandparents left India to make their homes in East Africa and later in London, where Neema was born and lives. Kololo Hill is her debut and was shortlisted for the Bath Novel Award and the First Novel Prize. She is currently working on her second novel.

Reviews

An impressive, confident debut about family and survival, against the backdrop of a history that is not written about often enough. -- Nikesh Shukla
Devastatingly beautiful . . . every sentence is a revelation. -- Nikita Gill, author of The Girl and the Goddess
Utterly heartbreaking and so moving . . . a thoughtful reflection on what home and belonging mean. -- Haleh Agar, author of Out of Touch
A moving portrayal of a family uprooted from a life they have worked so hard for. At times devastating, I found myself gripped to this story rooted in our history yet scarily still relevant. -- Louise Hare, author of This Lovely City
Kololo Hill offers a glimpse into a terrifying and fascinating period of history. Neema Shah evokes Amin's Uganda and early 1970s suburban England with both nuance and a fresh and wonderful vivacity. This is a book with a huge amount of heart; I was entirely captured by the stories of Asha, Jaya and Vijay. Their dreams and dilemmas resonate with many of today's key questions around culture, identity and the places - and people - we can each call 'home'. -- Joanne Sefton, author of The Guilty Friend
A searing, timely, and beautifully written tale of displacement, the meaning of home, and developing identity across generations. I loved it. -- Stephanie Scott, author of What's Left Of Me Is Yours
