An event with

Ellen Wiles

The Invisible Crowd


Wednesday 12th September 2018 at 6:30pm  |  Daunt Books Hampstead


2nd March 1975: in Asmara, Eritrea, Yonas Kelati is born into a world of turmoil; on the same day, Jude Munroe takes her first breath in London, England. Thirty years later, blacklisted in his war-ravaged country, Yonas is forced to flee his home, and ┬áhis asylum case lands on Jude’s desk. In the file she finds a patchwork of witness statements from those who met Yonas along his journey: a lifetime the same length of hers, reduced to a few scraps of paper. Soon Jude will stand up in court and tell Yonas’ story. How she tells it will change his life forever. Fearless, uplifting and compelling, The Invisible Crowd is a powerful debut novel about loyalty, kindness – and the brief moments which define our lives. Ellen Wiles will be in conversation with Emily Rhodes.
