I can't remember the name of the guy I met at Rose Records who was part of a music nerdy crowd who were stuck up against anyone who wasn't also a music nerd. He was heavyset and wore glasses and spoke pretentiously and was likely to break out into operatic solo for no special reason. He was shocked when I referred to African literature. "Is there such a thing?" so I told him about Chihua Achebe's work, "No Longer at Ease" and "Things Fall Apart" and I may have mentioned Soyinka's plays. I wonder how he views the world now.
