Shorties (Chigozie Obioma on His New Novel, a New Guided By Voices Song, and more)

An Orchestra of Minorities

Chigozie Obioma discussed his novel An Orchestra of Minorities with Weekend Edition.

"I've always wanted to write something that will show the world that prior to the coming of the British to Nigeria, we had some kind of complex systems. I feel like there hasn't been an African version of, say, Milton's 'Paradise Lost' which actually explored the very foundational principle of Western civilization, which would be the free will."

Obioma also talked to Electric Literature about the book.
