Portuguese writer Dulce Maria Cardoso spent her childhood in Angola and returned to Portugal following the Angolan War of Independence in 1975.

As part of the European Writers' Tour 2017, joined by her translator Ángel Gurría-Quintana, she will talk with European Literature Champion Rosie Goldsmith about her novel The Return which tells the story of a young boy’s return to Portugal, after growing up in Angola. A powerful coming-of-age story, set against the violent backdrop of decolonisation and the return to an old homeland, The Return was met with huge critical acclaim and is Dulce's first novel to appear in English translation.
