young writers have to ‘eat’ peacecully

For writers it is important to reflect on the social and political issues in their books. For some in the past it was the colonial legacy. For others it is a global view on local issues. How many Kenyan writers doe wite about the burning issue of ‘land’. Every Kenyan citizen would like to own a piece of land, but the stark reality is that some own large chunks and others own nothing, not even the shed they live in. 

Godwin Siundu raised this issue in a previous article, he is disappointed by the response he got. Now here is his follow up

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
