Kingston University (London, UK) has a nice tradition. Every year the university sends a book to its new students, in advance of the academic year. The new students are supposed to read the book. It is called the Big Read. For the new academic year the selection panel has set its eyes on a book by the Nigerian author Anietie Isong. He was not the only writer from African origin on the shortlist. The title of his book is ‘Radio Sunrise’.
