Ondjaki captures the humour and heartache of life in his hometown, Luanda

Most of the posts on this blog come from South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya. Three countries with a large pond of writing talent. Angola, with its Portuguese language background, is less at the forefront (at least for me). In this article you will find an interview with the Angolan writer Ondjaki (or his real name Ndalu de Almeida).

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