5 November 2012 Alain Mabanckou for TOK FM

A serious writer, but he smiles all the time. He has no mission, he prefers ideas instead. He writes lightly on serious matters, but does not avoid difficult issues. The story of his life could fill an entire book. In his latest novel, he deals with his childhood. And he does this with a smile on his face. The impact of shamans on African football, literary models, optimistic literature and the middle name he is shy about – Alain Mabanckou talks about these things with Łukasz Wojtusik, a reporter at TOK FM radio, during the Conrad Festival.
