Oncludes writing by Charles Cantalupo spanning roughly twenty-five years. Chronologically, it begins in 1993 with the first time he interviews Ngugi wa Thiong'o and ends in 2016, when Cantalupo last interviews him. In between, the decades reveal Cantalupo as a writer moving from a primarily Euro-American literary and cultural viewpoint to a continuum with African literatures and languages. Compelled by their power and their translation, he becomes deeply engaged with Eritrea, while also probing the process of translation itself.
