Pepetela (Angola)

Benguala ~ Angola

Pepetela tells an alternative Angolan tale: that of the Creole and white population of his country. In his work he discusses colonisation and the post-colonial problems in Angola and the whole of Africa. Pepetela was born as the son of Portuguese parents; he was actively engaged in the guerrilla against the colonial power and continues to involve himself in the social debate in Angola.
