Reviews

"Glimmering, strobe-lit language . . . a complex, cosmopolitan African experience too rarely depicted in books." --Teju Cole", ""GQ"'s Book of the Year Club

"Harried reader, I'll save you precious time: skip this review and head directly to the bookstore for Binyavanga Wainaina's standup-and-cheer coming-of-age memoir, "One Day I Will Write About This Place". Although written by an East African and set in East and Southern Africa, Wainaina's book is not just for Afrophiles or lovers of postcolonial literature. This is a book for anyone who still finds the nourishment of a well-written tale preferable to the emptycalorie jolt of a celebrity confessional or Swedish mystery." --Alexandra Fuller, "The New York Times Book Review"
