in the presence of shadows

“This books stands like a house.”
Could that be a phrase referring to the work of Yewande Omotose. She has a multi-national background as she was born on Barbados, grew up in Nigeria and lives in South Africa. She is an architect and she loves book. She writes and she designs.
She has been awarded the South African Literary Award (SALA) for the First-time Published Author in English.

Valentina A. Mmaka talks with her on her writing and her background. Warscapes Magazine published this interview on March 10, 2014.
