Author Tina Athaide has recently published a new book called Orange for the Sunsets which is inspired by the Ugandan Asian crisis.

From Quill and Quire:

“Athaide does a wonderful job bringing the mounting tension, stark racial divide, political scare tactics, and brutal history of Amin’s dictatorship to light; similarities to the world today make this an even more harrowing read. The Entebbe-born British-Indian writer – who left Uganda for England with her family just after Amin came to power in 1971 and then immigrated to Canada in 1976 – drew on research, interviews, and memories to construct the story, written from the alternating perspectives of Asha and Yesofu.”
