Ngugi wa Thiong'o is one of Africa's top writers of all time. He is a huge proponent of mother-tongue publishing, having begun writing his own works in Gikuyu rather than English as he once did. Rather than diminish his audience, it has opened up a new world of writing and reading. His short story 'The Upright Revolution' has been translated into more than 70 languages and was performed for us in 7 of them!
