Spike Island

Listen again: JJ Bola talks about his debut novel

Listen again to JJ Bola talking about his debut novel No Place to Call Home at Spike Island - as part of our Novel Writers series organised in partnership with Bristol Festival of Ideas.


With colourful characters and seamless prose, No Place to Call Home by Kinshasa born, London raised JJ Bola is a tale of belonging, identity and immigration, of hope and hopelessness, of loss — not by death, but by distance — and, by no means the least, of love.
