I want to be a book – On Becoming a Writer

Igoni Barrett tells his lovely unique story of how writing found him.

“My father is in Liberia, where there’s a civil war, and he’s writing about it for the newspapers. He loves me, he misses me, he’s sorry he and my mother are no longer together, and he plans to see me and Boma soon. He hopes I still read as much as I did.

I do, Daddy. I still do.”
