“What I want to do is to tell a good story, that is all”: In conversation with Caine Prize winner Okwiri Oduor

Kenya’s Okwiri Oduor has won the 2014 Caine Prize for African Writing, described as Africa’s leading literary award, for her short story entitled ‘’My Father’s Head’’. Oduor visited the Book Lounge in Cape Town last week to launch ‘The Gonjon Pin and other Stories’, an anthology of the 2014 Caine Prize. Daluxolo Moloantoa attended the event and had the importunity to speak with Odour about what it means to her to win the prize, the inspiration for “My Father’s Head”, her favourite authors and the best part about being a writer.
