Ngugi Wa Thiong'o - Wizard of the Crow

One of Africa's greatest writers, exiled from Kenya for 22 years because of his highly political and acclaimed work including the bestselling novel Petals of Blood, Ngugi returns with his first novel in 20 years, Wizard of the Crow. Set in a fictional modern African state, it is a magisterial, acerbic and humorous landmark of post-colonial literature. Ngugi will be discussing his life and his work with journalist Maya Jaggi.
