We are so delighted to share the news that Kayo Mpoyi has been announced as the winner of the Katapult Prize - Sweden's oldest and most prestigious debutant award.
The jury at the Swedish Writers' Union hails Mpoyi's novel Mai Means Water as "a remarkably stylish debut novel that spans several generations on the African continent and in Sweden. The epic stories of war and conflict that intersect geography, family and politics meet everyday childhood experiences through the child's gaze on the world."
