Aminatta Forna is an author, broadcaster and journalist. Her latest book is a passionate and vivid account of an African childhood. A daughter's memoir of her dissident father and her family, The Devil That Danced on the Water (HarperCollins May 2002) is the story of an African nation's transition from democracy to dictatorship. In the United Kingdom it was serialised as 'Book of the Week' on BBC radio and extracted in the Sunday Times newspaper. In the United States where it is to be published by Grove Atlantic, The Devil that Danced on the Water has been chosen by Barnes and Noble bookshop for their Discovery series.
