How Shall We Kill the Bishop? And Other Stories


An artist in mourning for a brother who died fighting in Bosnia, a restless young woman alerted to the possibility of life outside her tight knit community, an unemployed lawyer lingering in a Kenyan hospital – Lily Mabura’s first collection of short stories deals with characters whose fates fascinate and alarm. Set in Kenya, the USA, Namibia and the Congo, these brief, evocative tales demonstrate an acute sensitivity to the globalised trajectories which increasingly distinguish our world. One of Kenya’s most promising authors, Lily Mabura’s story How Shall We Kill the Bishop? was shortlisted for the 2010 Caine Prize for African Fiction
