Product description

Review

The narration is gripping * Inis * Leyden is a born storyteller. * The Irish Times * A beautifully written book that will hold readers' attention until the very end * Recommended Reads 2013 * Set in Zambia, this is an atmospheric and thought- provoking story in which ancient and modern worlds collide. -- Robert Dunbar * Irish Times * A mind-opening novel . . . a wonderfully sustained piece of comic writing in a novel that nevertheless engages with serious contemporary themes * Irish Times *

About the Author

Paula Leyden was born in Kenya and spent her childhood in South Africa and Zambia before attending boarding school in England for a number of years. As an adult she went on to live and work in South Africa, first as a teacher and then for a human rights organization, during which time she campaigned tirelessly for the end of apartheid and the death penalty in South Africa. The Sleeping Baobab Tree is the sequel to Paula's first novel, the award-winning The Butterfly Heart (9781406327922). In 2003 she moved to a farm in Kilkenny, Ireland with her family, where she now breeds horses and is a member of the Crab Apples Writers' Group.
