Saah Millimono: Petty Trader to Award-Winning Novelist
The keynote interview with award-winning Liberian novelist Saah Millimono, conducted by Hawa Jande Golakai, another young Liberian novelist, produced some startling, never-before disclosures about Millimono, leaving the audience sighing with inspiration as his debut novel, Boy, Interrupted, launched last Friday in Monrovia.
Golakai, who also helped edit the manuscript for Boy, Interrupted, was also listed in 2014 as as one of Africa’s top 39 authors under the age of 40, is also a medical scientist. Her own debut novel, The Lazarus Effect, has won several awards on the African Continent.
“I feel great to be in conversation with Saah about this piece of literary work that has helped to expand Liberian history,” Golakai said.
She added that one of the amazing things about Saah is that he improves on criticism and dedicates himself to his work.
