Binyavanga Wainaina nimmt seine Leser mit auf die Reise durch sein Leben von den 1970ern bis in die heutige Gegenwart. Er erzählt von einer Kindheit in der urbanen Mittelklasse Kenias, der Studienzeit im Südafrika des gesellschaftlichen Wandels, den ersten schriftstellerischen Versuchen bis zum literarischen Durchbruch. Starke sinnliche Erlebnisse mischen sich mit landschaftlichen Eindrücken, gleichzeitig wird die Bedeutung von Familie, Volk und Nation vor dem Hintergrund der sich wandelnden politischen Szenerie immer wieder in Frage gestellt. Ob Wainaina sich an den Haartrockner im Frisörladen seiner Mutter erinnert, an die Musik Michael Jacksons oder an ein Familientreffen in Uganda - er tut dies so liebevoll wie respektlos, so hinreissend komisch wie melancholisch und immer mit sprachlichem Witz und scharfem Blick auf die Brüche unserer Zeit. Binyavanga Wainaina, geboren 1971 in Kenia, studierte in Südafrika Wirtschaft und arbeitete anschliessend in Kapstadt als Journalist. Er gewann 2002 den Caine Prize for African Writing für die autobiografische Kurzgeschichte Discovering Home. 2006 absolvierte er an der University of East Anglia in Norwich ein Magister-Studium in Creative Writing und schrieb für National Geographic, The Virginia Quarterly Review, Granta und The New York Times. Er ist Herausgeber von Kwani?, einem führenden afrikanischen Literaturmagazin mit Sitz in Kenia. 2009 übernahm Wainaina die Leitung des Chinua Achebe Centers am Bard College, New York
