Oops, I did it again. I was sure I wrote the May challenge, but no. So, a bit late, here it is.
Around the World: A to Z May 2015
Read a book from a writer from one of those countries:
- Jībūtī (Djibouti)
- Қазақстан (Kazakhstan)
- Кыргызстан (Kyrgyzstan)
Here are some suggestions:
- The Last Warner Woman – Kei Miller (Jamaica);
- The Land Without Shadows – Abdourahman A. Waberi (Djibouti);
- The Silent Steppe: The Memoir of a Kazakh Nomad Under Stalin – Mukhamet Shayakhmetov (Kazakhstan)
- Days of My Life: An Autobiography – Grace Ogot (Kenya) who died recently. You can read more on the writer and the book at Black African Literature blog.
- Jamila – Chingiz Aitmatov (Kyrgyzstan). Historical fiction.
The last resort, if you would fail to get a book, is the free online reading of Kazakhs writers at Literary portal.
I have selected Kei Miller’s book (available in Polish), but I could have also easily read Kenyan fiction or poetry, Kazakhstan or Kyrgyzstan fiction. In Polish, from library.
What will you read? Can you suggest anything to read?
