Nuruddin Farah is considered one of the world?s great authors and is winner of the 1998 Neustadt International Prize for Literature.

Farah?s fiction often deals with women?s liberation issues in Africa and particularly his native Somalia. His most famous novel, Maps (1986), along with Gifts (1993) and Secrets (1998) comprise his acclaimed ?Blood in the Sun? trilogy. Knots, his new novel, is informed by Farah?s own recent efforts to reclaim his family?s property in Mogadishu, and his experiences trying to negotiate peace among the city?s warlords.

His lecture is supported by the Sosland Foundation of Kansas City.
