Serpent's tail acquires the UK rights of 'Confrontaties' by Simone Atangana Bekono
On The Bookseller:
Confrontations is a bold and unsettling story about race, belonging and the legacies of violence. Salomé Atabong arrives at a juvenile detention centre to start a six-month sentence for an act of vengeance after years of racist bullying. Instead of the simplistic contrition she is expected to feel by the counsellors, Salomé arrives at her own complex understanding of remorse, rehabilitation and dignity.
The debut novel by Atangana Bekono was translated by Suzanne Heukensfeldt Jansen
