Random House Publishing Group will publish Chika Unigwe's second novel Fata Morgana

The American edition of Chika Unigwe's second novel Fata Morgana will be published by Random House Publishing Group, the flagship imprint of Random House, Inc.

In Fata Morgana four African women, who work as prostitutes in Antwerp, are not entirely dissatisfied with their lot. But when one of them, Sisi, is murdered in one of the suburbs, the other three come together seeking protection, bringing with them their horror and their questions. Thoroughly documented and starkly realistic, Fata Morgana is a disconcerting account of a personal tragedy in a world still largely hidden from Western eyes.

Italian rights have been sold to Neri Pozza. Last year Jonathan Cape acquired the English rights.
