‘How to write about everything’

It would seem to me that a writer does not need to write about everything. The author has restrict his topic, his focus and the number of pages. Binyavanga Wainaina, who hails from Kenya, but who now resides in South Africa has spoken about the topic “How to write about everything”. Some years ago he published an essay on the topic  “How to write about Africa”.  Read here what he had to say in South Africa.

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