All Our Names, a Novel by Dinaw Mengestu

Wednesday, March 19, 2014

Dinaw Mengestu talks about his latest novel, All Our Names. It’s the story of two young men who come of age during an African revolution, drawn from the safe confines of the university into the clamor of the streets. But as the line between idealism and violence becomes increasingly blurred, the friends are driven apart—one into danger, the other into the safety of exile in America, where he is haunted by the friend he left behind.
