Brodie is a veteran journalist and bestselling author of five books. Knucklebone is her first work of fiction.

‘When I started writing the book,’ Brodie says, ‘it always had a very strong element of African traditional beliefs in it.

‘That meant doing not just online research but in person research about things that I didn’t really know that much about, particularly ubungoma and the work isangoma and how they saw the world, how they navigated the world.’
