Books Read in 2016: November

Ngugi wa Thiong’o, Birth of a Dreamweaver. New York: New Press, 2016.

The third installment covers Ngugi’s time at Makerere covers the moment his writing takes off, a moment–the dawn of African independence movements– pregnant with possibility.

Yaa Gyasi, Homegoing. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 2016.

Everyone has already reviewed this, I can only add that it helps us see what modernity has meant for us and our families, the ones whose names we might never know.
