14-minute clip from a recent TV profile by Norwegian television of a visit by Somali novelist Nuruddin Farah to that country. I never imagined book TV could look this good and informative.
Tradition, immigration, colonialism, exile, etcetera, gets an airing. We especially love how Farah turns the Norwegian interviewer’s questions about war, corruption and sadness to the personal or familial.
The clip also includes an interview with Brit-Somali novelist Nadifa Mohamed.
