Who's Abdulrazak Gurnah?
Abdulrazak Gurnah was born in the time 1948. He grew up on the isle of Zanzibar in Indian Ocean. after he arrived in England as a exile in 1960’s. He worked as Professor of English & Postcolonial Literatures at the University of Kent, Canterbury. He has published ten novels and several short stories.

First Literature
His work revolves around the theme of the exile’s disturbance. He started writing as a 21- year-old in English exile. Indeed though Swahili was his first language, he made English his bookish tool. He intentionally breaks with convention to emphasize the indigenous populations. As a result, his novel‘ Desertion’about a love affair becomes a contradiction to “ the imperial romance”.
