Hi! I’m starting a podcast! *drumroll* If you can’t tell, I’m super excited to make this announcement, because this is something I’ve wanted to do for years, but I kept putting it off for one reason or the other. Back in November, October-November is when my body gets hot with tons of ideas, I just have to do, I started planning and, now I can comfortably say I’m ready to share the news with the world!
I really can’t wait to go on this journey with you all, it’s going to be an extension more or less of this blog, but just a different medium aka audio. So please tune in to get book reviews and recommendations, hear me chat about all things bookish and most importantly have fun! I promise you a good time and a way to unwind 😘
Once upon a time, there was a book blog called Lost in a Story that belonged to a wonderful woman called Lia. Lia had a welcoming personality and it was always wonderful interacting with her on the interweb, and even more so when she started sharing her graphic illustrations on the internet with us.
Over the years I have watched her art evolve from being simply marvellous to astounding, along the way Lost in a Story became a thing of the past and merged into what is now Sunflowers and Wonders which is a blog that encompasses the interests and personality of Lia.
An ambitious and assured collection of short stories from the internationally acclaimed author of Kintu
If there’s one thing the characters in Jennifer Makumbi’s stories know, it’s how to field a question.
‘Let me buy you a cup of tea… what are you doing in England?’
‘Do these children of yours speak any Luganda?’
‘Did you know that man Idi Amin?’
But perhaps the most difficult question of all is the one they ask themselves: ‘You mean this is England?’
Told with empathy, humour and compassion, these vibrant, kaleidoscopic stories re-imagine the journey of Ugandans who choose to make England their home. Weaving between Manchester and Kampala, this dazzling, polyphonic collection will captivate anyone who has ever wondered what it means to truly belong.
