Elleke Boehmer, Professor or World Literature in English at Oxford University and biographer of Nelson Mandela, will give the Writers’ Centre at Norwich a revealing behind-the-scenes look at the making of The Shouting in the Dark.

The Witness‘s Moira Lovell has written this of The Shouting in the Dark:
While Boehmer is a skilful writer, she has created, in The Shouting in the Dark, an uncomfortable read . . .
