Forest Gate by Peter Akinti is a brand new novel from Free Press/Simon and Schuster. It is described as:
"A shattering, poetic and raw first novel set among young Somalian refugees in the slums of London - beginning with a double suicide and ending with a rebirth."
Akinti is described as "a modern day Richard Wright." This is a brand new Feb 2010 paperback release. A great multicultural read to explore Somali culture as well as the concept of acclimatizing to a new culture.
