In this vivid and compelling memoir, Binyavanga Wainaina tumbles through his middle-class Kenyan childhood out of kilter with the world around him. In One Day I Will Write About This Place, named a 2011 New York Times notable book, Wainaina brilliantly evokes family, tribe, and nationhood in joyous, ecstatic language.
âGlimmering, strobe-lit language . . . a complex, cosmopolitan African experience too rarely depicted in books.â âTeju Cole, GQâs Book of the Year Club
âHarried reader, Iâll save you precious time: skip this review and head directly to the bookstore for Binyavanga Wainainaâs 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, Wainainaâs 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.â âAlexandraÂ Fuller, The New York Times Book Review
