Our Book of the Week, Diego Garcia by Natasha Soobramanien and Luke Williams, has just been awarded the 2022 Goldsmiths Prize ("for fiction at its most novel"). This unique multivocal multilocational collaborative novel tells of two friends, blocked writers struggling with the relationship between fiction and reality, who make friends with a man whose mother was forced to leave one of the Chagos Islands in the Indian Ocean under the unlawful administration of the British government. Will fiction provide the friends with a way to tell a story that is not their own without appropriating or colonising that story?
