Nadia Owusu won a 2019 Whiting Award for her work on Aftershocks. “A memoir that broods on lost identity and statelessness” (Elle), this debut book tells the story of the nomadic childhood she spent following her Ghanaian diplomat father across Africa and Europe and her arrival in New York in the wake of his death. Her other writing has appeared or is forthcoming in the New York TimesLiterary Review, and Epiphany, among other publications.
