Anticipating … “Transparent City” by Ondjaki



A writer who has captured my attention over the last few years is the horribly prolific and talented Ndalu de Almeida. Better known as Ondjaki, this Angolan writer is quite rightly, in my opinion, coming to prominence in the Anglosphere.

The newest offering to an English-reading public is his critically acclaimed novel, Os transparentes (2012). Re-titled Transparent City for the English edition, this is yet another fantastic title added to the already impressive catalogue of the outstanding independent Canadian publisher, Biblioasis.

For those who enjoy such things, here is a recent interview with Ondjaki conducted by his English translator, Stephen Henighan.
