"When lead was found to be devastatingly harmful... whites were able to go to the suburbs to housing that had never been exposed to lead... But black people were not allowed to move into suburbs." -- Harriet A. Washington

Namwali Serpell is a Zambian writer who teaches at Cal-Berkeley. The Old Drift is an intergenerational saga that combines history and romance and science fiction--revealing the cruelties and absurdities of colonialism, and the yearning to create and cross borders.
