New Interview

I was interviewed by Ghanaian book blogger Geoffrey Gyasi here: https://geosireads.wordpress.com/2015/08/31/interview-with-michalle-gould-author-of-resurrection-party/ – this was cool both because it was fun doing the interview and I enjoyed answering the questions and because it reminded me that I should read more authors from different African countries.

I am particularly excited to check out some of the authors on these two lists: https://geosireads.wordpress.com/other-challenges/african-writers-challenge/ (the African Writers Series) and the Commonwealth Writers Prizewinners list: https://geosireads.wordpress.com/other-challenges/commonwealth-winners-challenge-africa/.

I am hoping to start with Benjamin Kwakye and Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o.  Also I really recommend Sembene Ousmane’s book God’s Bits of Wood: http://www.amazon.com/Gods-Bits-Wood-Sembene-Ousmane/dp/0435909592/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1441062307&sr=8-1&keywords=god%27s+bits+of+wood which is a harrowing novel about the 1947 Dakar-Niger railway strike.
