“Ode to Lata” featured in Spain’s Afribuku

Dhalla’s debut novel, Ode to Lata has been featured in the May 2018 edition of Afribuku – Cultura Aficana Contemporánea, Spain’s leading magazine on African culture and art. Included are also two chapters from the novel’s Spanish version which was published by Baphala Ediciones in 2017.

Editor, Mariana Jorge Lozano says, “The eroticism in Oda to Lata make it a key work in our catalog. The representation that Ghalib Shiraz Dhalla makes of his characters — actively sexual beings, full of compassion and realism — offer a vision of queer Africa that, unfortunately, is still scarce.”
