If You Want to Be a Prolific Writer, Become a Voracious Reader
Srinivas Rao

So true. I’ve learned a lot from writers like Katherine Boo and Matthew Desmond about how to write scintillating descriptive ethnographies — if I’mstaying up late to read a non-fiction book because I need to know what happens next, the author did something right!

I’ve also read and re-read Chimamanda Adichie. I wish that I could write about the places in my life with as much love and insight as she writes about Lagos and Nigeria.
