Before We Hit the Ground

Author: Selali Fiamanya

Under the shadow of the unexpected death of son and brother Kwame, a Scottish-Ghanaian family struggle to find their place in the world in a patchwork of interconnected short stories. Over a generation, the Setrana family confront grief, sex, culture clashes, and psychosis in their search for identity in 21st century, queer, diasporic Britain. Before We Hit the Ground is a novel-in-stories that asks what it is to live authentically when the only thing changing faster than the world around you is the world within.
