Award winning author

The stunning second title from the award-winning author of Kintu is a soulful, fiercely original story rooted in Ugandan mythology.

Smart, headstrong Kirabo is raised by her grandparents in rural Uganda. But as she enters her teens, she starts to feel overshadowed by the absence of the mother she has never known. At once epic and deeply personal, The First Woman is the bold and piercing story of one young girl’s discovery of what it means to be a woman in a family, a community and a country that seem determined to silence her. Steeped in the rich folklore of Uganda but with an eye firmly on the future, Jennifer Makumbi has written a sweeping, effervescent tale of longing, femininity and courage.

'The First Woman is a fabulous, wide-ranging, complex, funny and sad coming-of-age story with one of the most engaging heroines in years.'
Louise Doughty, Jhalak Prize judge

'The First Woman is captivating, wise, humorous and tender: Makumbi has come back stronger than ever.'
Maaza Mengiste, author of The Shadow King

'The First Woman is a wonder, as clear, vivid, moving, powerful, and captivatingly unpredictable as water itself.'
Namwali Serpell, author of The Old Drift
