"The Nobel Prize-winning writer introduces Chronicles from the Land of the Happiest People on Earth, his first novel in 48 years, in a live-streamed conversation with Emma Dabiri.
Following engineer and Yoruba royal Duyole Pitan-Payne, Chronicles from the Land of the Happiest People on Earth is a dazzlingly brutal look at the nature of greed, power and the soul of a nation...
Soyinka has remained an enduring critic of successive Nigerian governments, and the nature of corruption at large, even evading a death sentence in absentia.
In 1986, he was awarded the Nobel Prize in Literature.
Emma Dabiri is an Irish-Nigerian academic, activist and broadcaster.
Presented in partnership with Guardian Live.."
