Ben Rawlence

Ben Rawlence talks about his internationally best selling book City of Thorns. Recently book of the week on Radio Four, it interweaves the stories of nine people living in the refugee camp Dadaab.

To the charity workers, Dadaab refugee camp is a humanitarian crisis; to the Kenyan government, it is a ‘nursery for terrorists’ but to its half a million residents, it is their last resort. City of Thorns is an urgent human story with deep international repercussions, brought to life through the stories of people who call Dadaab home.

Los Angeles Times “Magisterial”
The Sunday Times “Masterful”
Observer “Outstanding”
The Guardian “Remarkable… brilliant…Timely, compelling and disturbing.”

Trevithick starring Kernow King

“Sometimes I imagine myself to be my statue down Camborne, gazing out over those roundabouts…. watching the cars, lorries and motorbikes bombing along.

The ingenuity in all that machinery going on… .. the pistons, the pumps, the fumes, the exhausts, the fuel…. it’s all so easy now.”

Kernow King tells the story of one of Cornwall’s greatest sons Richard Trevithick.
