David Attwell did not travel all the way from York University to give only one lecture on the life and work of J.M. Coetzee. He gave a second lecture. He is of the opinion that the work of Coetzee is highly biographical. Read more about this angle of perception.
Just earlier today I posted an article on one of the books written by the Kenyan author Ngugi wa Thiong’o. Now we listen to his tribute to Nadine Gordimer, who passed away recently. He relates of the occasion they met in the United States in 1991.
Godwin Siudu travels to the year 1964. When I was still young Ngugi wa Thiong’o published his book ‘Weep not Child’. And 50 years later this book is still going strong. Thousand of young people have read this book, and I think, many more are to follow. Godwin takes at another look at this book.
