The Other Hand, also known as Little Bee, is a 2008 novel by British author Chris Cleave. It is a dual narrative story about a Nigerian asylum-seeker and a British magazine editor, who meet during the oil conflict in the Niger Delta, and are re-united in England several years later. Cleave, inspired as a university student by his temporary employment in an asylum detention centre, wrote the book in an attempt to humanise the plight of asylum-seekers in Britain.

This is a very well written story about a young African refugee who finds her way to England. Her past experiences, and her current perception and experience of the English make for a poignant narrative of struggle and resolution.
The most powerful book I have read in a long time. I recommend it to everyone. The unusual rhythm to the writing is perfect, creative, insightful and the book touched my heart in ways I never expected.
