I started subscribing to the email newsletter of AfricaBookClub.com sometime in 2010, and do enjoy some of the articles and the links.
This month’s interview is with Manu Herbstein, author of Ama, a story of the slave trade, but also of northern Ghana and Asante. I had met Manu on a few occasions, and was of course interested to see what his prize winning novel would be like. But I also remember having to ask my daughter to buy me a copy of this book when it was first published, as it was only available in the US via a publish on demand company called E-reads. It is only fairly recently that it has become available in Ghana.
How things have changed over the last nine years or so!
