My name is Ryoichiro Saito.
Do you know Kenyan writer Ngugi wa Thiong'o?
Do you know Nigerian writer Buchi Emecheta?
In this page I write about their works.
Now, I am reading Ngugi's "Petals of Blood" with my friend Shigeru Ushikubo.
Every Thurday night we are reading it and a swahili novel "Kichwa Maji (Water in the Head, in English).
If you are interested in African writers' works, you are welcomed!
Last Thurday, I received an e-mail from this page's reader. Inter-net search engine made a good work and I up-date this page two years aftre last modify. Some links from this page are out of date, which I remove.
I am not good at English writing.
If you find any mistake in my writing, please teach me, and I will become a better English writer.
