“Remarkably talented” Ethiopian American author Dinaw Mengestu has earned a mantel of awards and distinctions such as a place on the 2010 New Yorker’s coveted list of ’20 under 40’ with his outstanding debut and follow-up novels.  Children of the Revolution and How to Read the Air are two fictional accounts of displacement and identity experienced by immigrants. He speaks to Akin Jeje about his two books, and together cuts into African Writing and authenticity.
