I think I’m a political person; I’m a person who’s interested in politics. I’m interested in the way the world works; I’m interested in understanding it. I actually think of myself as a political student. “Political writer” always makes me sort of stop and think because, OK, what does that mean? And I think it makes me a little worried. Because it just seems to me, when you’re not a white male writing about white male things then somehow your work has to Mean something. So people have said to me, “I read your first novel, it’s really a political allegory about Nigeria, isn’t it?” And I said, “No, it’s about a messed up family.”
