Hello from San Francisco. In The Sunday Times I interview - or, rather, sit at the feet of - Chinua Achebe. Link later. Here it is.


  1. Good job its SF and not Lagos, Brit would be organizing a whip round to pay the ransom fee.

  2. “A friend of mine came to the hospital where I was being sort of put together again by doctors, and he said, ‘Why would this happen to you?’ I said, ‘Do you have somebody else in mind?’..."

    I admire deeply the spirit of one who can see thus.

  3. That was a really good article except for the bit comparing Rush Limbaugh's rhetoric to actual infanticide, which was fatuous bollocks of the most fatuously bollocky kind.
