Event Details

 

 

 

My First Coup D’Etat: And Other True Stories from the Lost Decades of Africa, by the Vice President of Ghana, is a fable-like memoir that offers a shimmering microcosm of post-colonial Africa.  Mahama’s is a rare literary voice from a political leader, and his personal stories work on many levels—as fables, as history, as cultural and political analysis, and, of course, as the memoir of a young man who, unbeknownst to him or anyone else, would grow up to be vice president of his nation. Mahama will be in conversation with Andrew Solomon, author of the critically acclaimed book The Noonday Demon.
