Aké: The Years of Childhood
- THE NOBEL PRIZE WINNERS
Translated from English by Maia Jijeishvili
Wole Soyinka, the Nigerian poet and playwright, was the first African to be awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature which he received in 1986. His memoirs Aké: The Years of Childhood (1981) tell about his early years in the British dominion, which is narrated with a poetic skill and soft humour, with a touch of nostalgia.
