Yohannes Ishi

By Nabse Bamato

General fiction, Literary fiction | Paperback, eBook


Yohannes was adopted as a baby from Ethiopia, during one of its most turbulent times. Having grown up in the UK, he returns to Addis Ababa to find himself thrust into the perplexing social structure of contemporary Ethiopia. He meets a whole raft of unique and entertaining characters who will be recognised by Ethiopians and non-Ethiopians alike. Built on my personal experiences of living both in Ethiopia and overseas, this book explores people’s similarities in the broad context of humanity, while attempting to highlight our unique cultural and religious identities. Although the themes are serious, it entertains with a light humour, as well as providing an insight into life at all levels of Ethiopian society. I would like to think that for my fellow Ethiopians – whether living at home or abroad – Yohannes Ishi will serve as a window to look into the unique customs of their fabulous country and, for those who are not familiar with the culture and history of Ethiopia, it will act as an inspiring introduction.

I grew up in the heart of my much loved Addis Ababa, in Ethiopia, smelling the freshly roasted coffee and listening to the Sunday morning programmes on the radio. I now live in the grim North West with my young family and a four-legged friend. I am a lifelong supporter of Liverpool Football Club and a voracious reader of newspapers and books of all descriptions. Yohannes Ishi is my first novel.
