Manu Herbstein interviewed by

I started subscribing to the email newsletter of 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!
