Born in Nigeria, Odafe Atogun  is a writer who draws inspiration from his African society to create a unique and colourful world where humankind is consumed by a common desire for change.  His debut novel, Taduno’s Song, published by Canongate, has been acquired in the US by Alfred A. Knopf, and is to be translated into German by Arche, Italian by Frassinelli, and Turkish by Yurt Kitap, with other countries soon to come. Following his two-book deal with Canongate, Alfred A.
