TPB Literary Book Club - The Book of Memory

Awaiting trial for the murder of her adopted father in a Zimbabwean prison, an albino woman named Memory must write her story as she remembers it, her only chance to avoid a mandatory death sentence. In crisp, vivid prose, Gappah's debut novel questions the reliability of memory and perception, demonstrating how superstition and prejudice can shape a life.
