Published in 2005, this fascinating book looks at the customs and culture of the Sudanese community in the Brighton and Hove area.

The British and Sudanese cultures are very different to one another and the narrative includes comparisons of the two cultures, as well as giving first-hand descriptions of festivals, celebrations including weddings and funerals, and food. It also fulfils the function of recording a culture’s history for future generations.

Missing the Nile: Experiences of Sudanese people in Brighton was originally written in both English and Arabic. The original book is now out of print but is available as a PDF download of the English text on a pay-what-you-like basis.
