    The stunning debut from "one of the best British writers to emerge in the past decade." (Julian Barnes) With a voice that is at once fierce and lyrical, Adam Foulds tells the story of the Mau Mau uprising against British colonial rule in 1950s Kenya. Tom, a young man who has returned to his family's farm, rapidly becomes caught up in the intensifying events of violence and brutality in a conflict Foulds illustrates as both utterly contemporary and yet deeply burdened by the history of race and empire in this region. The Broken Wordwas the recipient of the Costa (Whitbread) Poetry Award, and Foulds's The Quickening Mazewas a finalist for the Man Booker Prize.

    Adam Foulds was born in 1974 and lives in south London. In 2001 he graduated from the Creative Writing MA at the University of East Anglia. In 2007 he won a Betty Trask Award for The Truth About These Strange Times and two years later, in 2009, his novel The Quickening Maze was shortlisted for the Booker Prize.
