    Great interview Samba and Doreen. I have my own copy of Tropical Fish and greatly enjoyed it. It is weird eh, this book is on so many best African author books – like literally Doreen is a legend around us, we better recognise her greatness!! Also I just discovered the book is translated in Swedish!
