The Anthill

by Julianne Pachico - £8.99  Faber & Faber (2022)
paperback    ISBN 13: 9780571331499 | ISBN 10: 0571331491

The propulsive debut novel from one of the most innovative young fiction writers today – a searing and affecting depiction of what redemption can be for a person and for a country in the wake of trauma.
 
Lina returns to Colombia after twenty years away. Sent to England after her mother’s death when she was eight, she’s searching for the person who can tell her what’s happened in the time that has passed. Matty – Lina’s childhood confidant, her best friend – now runs a refuge called The Anthill for the street kids of Medellín. But her long-anticipated reunion with him is struck by tension. Memory is fallible, and Linda discovers that everyone has a version of the past that is very, very different.

"An engrossing tale of a young woman’s return to her roots in the troubled streets of Medellin."
(Sunday Times)
"A brilliant, feverishly imaginative novel."
(Sharlene Teo)
