We are excited to be joined by Nompilo Gumede on another episode of the Author’s Perspective Podcast. She talks about her journey as a writer, how she drew inspiration for her book, The Demon’s Wife from African mythology, and the importance of creating stories that reflect the African experience. We also explore the themes of identity, power and wealth that are woven throughout the story. Nompilo shares her advice for aspiring authors, and her thoughts on the importance of amplifying African identity in literature. Her insightful take on African identity and the power of stories to create transformative experiences is enlightening and refreshing. This is a must-listen episode for anyone interested in African identity or the power of storytelling.
