Arushi Raina


Arushi Raina grew up in South Africa, and by the age of 25, has lived in Egypt, Nigeria, India, the US, UK and, most recently, Canada. She had tried to write a novel since high school, and she finally succeeded during her Economics and English degree in New York. Her well-researched debut novel, When Morning Comes, is from the perspective of four very different young people living in Johannesburg in 1976, the year of the Soweto Uprising that challenged the apartheid in South Africa.
