Ngugi wa Thiong'o
 
Ngũgĩ is a Distinguished Professor of English and Comparative Literature at UC Irvine. A novelist, essayist, playwright, journalist, editor, academic and social activist from Kenya, he lived through Kenya’s War of Independence (1952-1962), a major theme of his novel, Petals of Blood (1977). Sharply critical of the injustices of Kenyan society, Ngũgĩ was arrested and imprisoned without charge at Kamiti Maxium Security Prison, an account which can be found in his memoir, Detained: A Writer’s Prison Diary (1981). Ngũgĩ is a recipient of eleven Honorary Doctorates, a Fellow of the MLA and an Honorary Member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, and an elected member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences.
