Description

Episode #26 of LouisvilleReads! Reviewing 2021 Nobel Prize for Literature winner Abdulrazak Gurnah's evocative 1994 coming of personal and geographic age novella 'Paradise'. Young Tanzanian Yusuf enters indentured servitude under his quite benevolent Uncle Aziz and journeys west to Congo interior, as well as into his own for the first time. As the shadow of late 19th century European colonialism falls on the continent at novel's end Yusuf (quintessentially African) sees a mysteriously indestructible hope rise within himself. Interview with the author on the back half!
