Tade Thompson, featured on Episode 46, is giving away two hard copies of Making Wolf. Here are his thoughts on the book:
MAKING WOLF is a love letter to the pulp crime novels that occupied me on long, hot afternoons in my teenage years. I’m talking about Chandler, Spillane, Hammett, Chase, Pendleton. It is also a memoir of my time in Nigeria, though transformed beyond all recognition (this is a lie. My sister recognized all of it). It is not for kids. It is an adult book with adult themes and a farcical harshness that is not for the meek. Though this particular story is complete, I am not done with the characters yet. The cover art is gorgeous and you should buy the book for that reason alone. Frame that sucker! I sometimes worry that a general audience may not have enough cultural context, but it is a novel, an entertainment. It is not anthropology field work. I don’t view it as a genre novel, but don’t take my word for it. Read it; form your own opinion.
