Moses McKenzie is an author from Bristol. His debut literary novel An Olive Grove in Ends is a resonant coming of age story which also offers an intimate portrait – at times tender and lyrical, at others bleak and despairing – of a Black-British community in Bristol.
Moses McKenzie’s novel An Olive Grove in Ends is published in the UK under the Wildfire imprint of Headline Publishing. It was listed as one of the 10 best debut novels of 2022 in The Observer, and, in a US review, has been called ‘the most exciting UK debut in years’.
Moses’s writing is strongly influenced by the influences of James Baldwin and Maya Angelou.
