Pre-press production and publication


Bona Malwal is a visiting academic at St Antony’s College, University of Oxford, distinguished journalist and highly regarded influencer in the peace process in Sudan. Bourchier is privileged to have been offered two of Bona’s books for publication: Abyei of the Ngok Dinka: Not Yet South Sudan (2018), followed by his autobiography, No Future without the Past, a record of his life in politics (2022). We worked closely with Bona to hone his manuscripts, create a bespoke cover and arrange publication.
