About the Book

No Bad Bush tells the story of Dema and Musa, a woman and man divided by an unspeakable act committed during Sierra Leone’s civil war. Tonight, after years of silence, they will face an impossible decision as their tightly held secrets are finally laid bare before their community.

No Bad Bush explores the dueling powers of shame and forgiveness in a haunting, lyrical tale from the author of Because We Are: A Novel of Haiti.
