A trailblazing collection of writing from Binyavanga Wainaina's extraordinary life, featuring an introduction from his long-time friend, Chimamanda Ngozi AdichieBinyavanga Wainaina was a seminal author and creative force, remembered as one of the greatest chroniclers of contemporary African life. This ground-breaking collection brings together, for the first time, Binyavanga’s pioneering writing on the African continent including many of his most critically acclaimed pieces, such as the viral satirical sensation How to Write About Africa. Writing fearlessly across a range of topics - from politics to international aid, cultural heritage and redefining sexuality - this is a remarkable illustration of a writer at the height of his power.
