Good work mobirise team.
Special thanks to Daniel Goldin at Boswell Books — some of the best questions are from an interview I did with him. If you have any suggestions for how I can make this page more useful, please let me know via email or via the comments box.
Is the novel based on a true story? In an Angolan man named Manuel Bravo fled to England and claimed asylum on the grounds that he and his family would be persecuted and killed if they were returned to Angola.
He lived in a state of uncertainty for four years pending a decision on his application. Then, without warning, in September Manuel Bravo and his year-old son were seized in a dawn raid and interned at an Immigration Removal Centre in southern England.
They were told that they would be forcibly deported to Angola the next morning. That night, Manuel Bravo took his own life by hanging himself in a stairwell. His son was awoken in his cell and told the news. What had happened was that Manuel Bravo, aware of a rule under which unaccompanied minors cannot be deported from the UK, had taken his own life in order to save the life of his son.
Among his last words to his child were: Do well at school.
I like both the titles the novel is published under. Also I like it because it sounds bright and approachable — and my aim with this novel was to write an accessible story about a serious subject.
I like the fact that the novel has two titles. I like it when divergent choices are simultaneously right. Yes, there was a chance encounter that really shook me up. Around fifteen years ago I was working as a casual labourer over the university summer vacation, and for three days I worked in the canteen of Campsfield House in Oxfordshire.
The conditions in there were very distressing. Some of them were beautiful characters and it was deeply upsetting to see how we were treating them. I see my job as providing new information in an entertaining way. Readers will then use that information as the spirit moves them.
When I started to imagine the life of one asylum seeker in particular, rather than asylum seekers in general, the scales fell from my eyes in regard to any ideological position I might have held on the issue.
Life is precious, whatever its country of origin. What could Little Bee do if she was allowed to stay as a permanent citizen? I think Little Bee could do anything she set her mind to, because by definition she is a survivor.
When I was a teenager in the s, we thought of asylum seekers as heroes. The hundreds who died while trying to cross the Berlin Wall, for example.
Or the pilots, performers and scientists who defected from the Soviet Union.What is SAFE RIDE?
