Here is an interview with Capital Newspaper‘s Groum Abate about the book.

 

And here is an interview in Amharic on Sheger Radio (thank you Demissew!).

 

Et, a different matter, but still of interest to all Ethiophiles, the literary magazine Toute La Lire (French), has just published the introduction to Le Syllabaire Abyssin (French) – a hommage to Jean-Michel Cornu de Lenclos – to whom Ethiopia through writers’ eyes is also dedicated.

 

The Anglo-Ethiopian Society has announced its book club will be meeting for a discussion around Ethiopia through writers’eyes on March 8 2017 at 7.30 at the National Theatre (South Bank, London SE1 9PX).

A heartfelt thank you to Jean-Marc, Lucien & Thomas – and the whole team from the Louvre (and especially the chef), for the warm and friendly atmostphere and the tasty food of the Louvre – an ‘Alliance Française bis’ in Addis Ababa – and to Awash Wine and Hervé for kindly providing their Abyssinian cocktails for the launch of our very own Ethiopian blend: that special concoction of Ethiopian flights of fancy and historical relations, Ethiopia through writers’ eyes.

 

(And a special thank you to Daniel Seyoum from Lexical for being attentive to every detail of the book’s progress – from the printing to the event itself, no detail was too small for him. Thank you Danny!)
