Where the Air Is Sweet
Tasneem Jamal left Uganda as a young child, one of thousands of Asians expelled by dictator Idi Amin. But a few years ago she returned to Africa with her family to write a novel that explores that part of Uganda's history. The result is a book called Where the Air Is Sweet, with a main character inspired by Tasneem's own grandfather. Tasneem Jamal spoke with Giacomo Panico about her book, and her own personal encounter with Idi Amin. You can listen to the interview here.
