Larra Pawson

Lara Pawson's life as a writer began in journalism, working for both print and broadcast media. For stretches, she has lived in Ivory Coast, Ghana, Mali, South Africa and Angola, working mainly for the BBC World Serivce. Her first book In the Name of the People: Angola’s Forgotten Massacre (2014) was a mix of investigative journalism, history and memoir. It was longlisted for the Orwell Prize and shortlisted for the Bread and Roses Award.

Her second book This Is the Place to Be began life as a sound installation, but was expanded to become a fragmentary memoir. It was shortlisted last year for the Bread and Roses Award, the PEN Ackerley Prize and the Gordon Burn Prize.

Now based in London's north-east corner, she is working on a novel and several short stories.
