My Life in the Bush of Books – Emma Iduma

Emmanuel Iduma is the author, most recently, of A Stranger’s Pose, which was nominated for the 2019 Ondaatje Prize.

1. Favourite book ever: None.

2. Why? It’s very hard for me to think in terms of a single favorite. A list of 10? I’d be able to do that.

3.  Last book read? Graham Greene’s Journey Without Maps.

4.  Packing for a journey and allowed to take one book. What will it be? A necessary question, since I’m planning for trips at this time. Lucy Ellman’s 1,000-page novel, Ducks, Newburyport.

5. Why? I haven’t read it, and for a long trip I’ll have enough to read.

6. Who is your favourite author/writer? John Berger.

7. Do you think Nigerians read?If we didn’t it would have been impossible for me to become a writer.
