About the Author

Born in 1960 in London to Guyanese parents, Fred D'Aguiar lived in Guyana until he was twelve, returning to the UK in 1972. He read African and Caribbean Studies at the University of Kent, graduating in 1985. D'Aguiar soon established a firm reputation as an important British poet, novelist and playwright. The Longest Memory was his first novel, published in 1994.


"A haunting novel whose brevity and directness belie the depths of tragedy it plumbs." -- Aida Edemariam The Guardian (London) "D'Aguiar marks his accomplished arrival as a novelist with this compelling and compassionate work" -- Sean Coughlan The Times "A short book that speaks volumes about slavery... Keeping his page taut with compression and compassion, D'Aguiar makes The Longest Memory hard to forget" -- Peter Kemp Sunday Times "This deceptively simple book resonates long after it is finished" -- Paula Burnett New Statesman and Society
