Nigerian internationally acclaimed Writer/Author took out time to join Malaysian writer, in a conversation at NYC Book Launch of his latest book, “We, the Survivors”.
Both writers took to their various Instagram pages to post about the event. The author of the new book, wrote:
The writer presents a compelling depiction of a man’s act of violence, set against the backdrop of Asia in flux.
Ah Hock is an ordinary man of simple means, so what brings him to kill a man? This question leads a young, privileged journalist to Ah Hock’s door.
While the victim has been mourned and the killer has served time for the crime, Ah Hock’s motive remains unclear, even to himself.
The unfurling of Ah Hock’s confession forces both the speaker and his listener to reckon with systems of power, race, and class in a place where success is promised to all yet delivered only to its lucky heirs.
