MY LIFE IN THE BUSH OF BOOKS- Uzodinma Iweala, Author of Beast of No Nation
Favourite book ever.
I don’t have a particular one. There are a couple like ‘Two Thousand Seasons’ by Ayi Kwei Armah and ‘The Waves’ by Virginia Wolfe.
‘Two Thousand Seasons’ is a beautifully written, troublesome book with very dense and thick language. It tells the history of the continent of Africa through different phases of interaction with “outsiders.”
3. Last book read?
I just finished a book called ‘ The Three Body Problem’, a Chinese science fiction book about contact with aliens.
4. Packing for a journey and allowed to take one book. What will it be?
*Laughs* My Journal.
I need to be able to write.
6. Who is your favourite author/writer?
I don’t really have a favourite author. That’s like asking someone to pick their favourite child.
There are so many people am interested in for different reasons and I think it shifts depending on your personal growth.
Right now am reading a lot of folks writing apocalyptic and post apocalyptic literature
7. Do you think Nigerians read?
I think Nigerians read. The question is what do they read? A lot of us just prefer to read business and self help books.
