New Interview

I was interviewed by Ghanaian book blogger Geoffrey Gyasi here: – 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: (the African Writers Series) and the Commonwealth Writers Prizewinners list:

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: which is a harrowing novel about the 1947 Dakar-Niger railway strike.
