Author (Kenya)

| Utne Reader September / October 2007

Self-exiled from Kenya for 22 years, Thiong'o is one of Africa's most respected writers for his highly political work, which includes the best-selling novel Petals of Blood. He has just returned to attention with the English translation of his novel Wizard of the Crow, a magisterial, acerbic milestone work set in a fictional modern African state.
