An Evening With Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o
Monday, November 12, 2018 @ 8:00 pm
300 NE Second Ave., Miami, FL 33132 United States
One of today’s leading African writers and scholars, Kenyan-born Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o’s Wrestling with the Devil: A Prison Memoir (The New Press) is the unforgettable chronicle of the year this brilliant novelist and memoirist, long favored for the Nobel Prize, was thrown in a Kenyan jail without charge. There, he lives in a prison block with eighteen other political prisoners, quarantined from the general prison population. He captures not only the excruciating pain that comes from being cut off from his wife and children, but also the spirit of defiance that defines hope. Ultimately, Wrestling with the Devil is a testimony to the power of imagination to help humans break free of confinement, which is truly the story of all art.
