to read more (not a NYE resolution)

(currently reading We Need New Names by NoViolet Bulawayo #awardwinningbook)

i have quite a few abandoned reading lists. i think this new year i need to do some catching up on unfinished books, unread new books (lots of these), and abandoned lists.

in 2015, i might set a reading target. i might not.

look was i picked up at the bookstore! yay! these are definitely on my 2015 reading listp.

the uncritical acceptance of English

“The ‘uncritical acceptance’ of English or French as the medium of educated African writing is ‘misdirected’, says [Obiajunwa] Wali, and ‘has no chance of advancing African literature and culture’.”

from Stylistic Criticism and the African Novel by Emmanuel Ngara (1982). Quoting Wali, ‘The Dead End of Afican Literature?’, Transition, Vol. 3, No. 10.
