Chris Cleave


Little Bee was a staff favorite last year.  It is a haunting novel of a young Nigerian refugee in England, searching for someone from her past.  Little Bee's author, Chris Cleave, will be stateside to celebrate the paperback release of his wonderful novel. 

When Chris wrote to booksellers about Little Bee, he said, "I write because there are stories I want to tell about our world.  I believe that extraordinary global stories play out in the lives of ordinary people.  I think my books are popular because readers agree that people are braver and funnier and more complex than TV has the time to show.  I like humans, frankly, and with your help I will continue to write about them the best way I know how."
