How to Write About Africa

A trailblazing collection of writing on contemporary Africa from across Binyavanga Wainaina's extraordinary life — ranging from musings on politics and culture to deeply personal introspections

Binyavanga Wainaina was a seminal author and activist, remembered as one of the greatest chroniclers of contemporary African life. After his death in 2019, this ground-breaking collection brings together his pioneering writing on the African continent for the first time. Featuring an introduction by his long-time friend Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.

A rule-breaker full of wry satire and piercing wisdom, this collection includes many of Binyavanga's most critically acclaimed pieces, including the viral satirical sensation 'How to Write About Africa'. Writing fearlessly across a range of topics — from politics to international aid, cultural heritage and redefining sexuality, this is a remarkable illustration of a writer at the height of his power.
