Aminatta Forna: observations from the window seat

From Saturday Morning, 8:30 am on 10 July 2021

Born in Scotland, writer Aminatta Forna has been travelling the globe since she was six months old, when her family moved to Sierra Leone for her father’s job as a physician. 

Forna’s ongoing love of exploration has been captured in her new book, The Window Seat: Notes From A Life In Motion, a collection of thought-provoking essays that traverse a range of subjects including displacement, identity, memory, and how we encroach on the non-human world.
