The Moroccan-American Pulitzer Prize nominee Laila Lalami is a lecturer at the University of Southern California, novelist and essayist. She is a finalist of both the Booker and Pulitzer prizes, which led to her international breakthrough. The Other Americans was a finalist for the National Book Award, the Kirkus Prize and the Aspen Literary Award. The Moor’s Account is a fictionalised travelogue by the first Black explorer of America; an enslaved Moroccan whose testimony was never included in the official histories. The Other Americans is a timely, provocative and gripping novel about immigration. A family saga, whodunnit and love story all rolled up in one, that subtly exposes the problems in Western society.
