Comments Off on Winter Warmers: Books you should read
The Afrokulcha team has put together this wonderful list of books you should consider reading this winter. 2020 Winters amidst Covid-19 requires us to stay more at home, practise social distancing and most certainly read more books! Here is a few books that we enjoyed, we hope you enjoy them as much.
1. We, the scarred
Mukoma wa Ngugi, what a writer! Not only did we enjoy this story of Kwatee republic, the story of a young man Kalumba sent to exile, comes back home after his best friend has taken his lover, and this same friend is the one who leads to his downfall. Kalumba stands for the truth, but was he a traitor or a good comrade. A story of an African immigrant going back home, finding love again & dealing with consequences of political exile. What a read!
2. The Son of the house
Cheluchi Onyemelukwe-Onuobia (that’s a name to remember) writes brilliantly. This is a story of 2 women awaiting their fate after being kidnapped, they start telling each other the story of their lives, the stories of african women, resilient, determined and navigating the world of men & the likes. We love it when the stories come together to form one, and you are left with your mouth wide open. The Son of the House won several novel writing competitions.
3. Fire in my bones
Nobuntu Webster writes a compeling story, about her life. She tackles the issues around what religion teaches you in comparison to believing in God. These are really confessions of a church girl. A thought provoking read!
