Diaries of a Dead African

Chuma Nwokolo’s Diaries of a Dead African is a novel in three diaries written by an embattled farmer, Meme Jumai, and his two sons, Abel (failed writer) and Calama (aspiring conman). Funny and idiosyncratic, Diaries presents an authentic face of a private dilemma with universal and tragic dimensions. A condensed version of Meme’s Diary was published by London Review of Books. In 2002 it was translated into Italian for a special edition of Internazionale featuring their three best stories from around the world. A purged entry from the Diaries was translated into Slovenian for Arzenal, a publication of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts; another won the Subway Lit prize
