Binyavanga Wainaina, One Day I Will Write About This Place
Like Leigh Newman’s Still Points North, Binyavanga Wainaina’s One Day I Will Write About This Place is fundamentally a story of how one writer developed their singular perspective on the world through an interaction with the world around them. In Wainaina’s case, that includes an account of his childhood in Kenya. He describes it in evocative passages that are juxtaposed with his increasing awareness of political and social issues as he grows older — a reminder of the larger forces at work in the world around us all.
