What you need to know:

Name: Peter Ngila Njeri, writer and editor 

I could say I have been reading all my life. Having grown up under my grandmother, I grew up with stories. I used to be that quiet boy who would rather hide in a book than go out playing. I read everything I laid my hands on; newspapers in school, children's books like Adventures of Thiga, my elder cousins’ high school set books and even books with covers torn out, like Arrow of God by Chinua Achebe. I was lucky that my deceased uncle had a bookshelf in the village with all those fine Heinemann African Writers Series. That’s why today I own the first 1982 edition of Devil on the Cross by Ngugi wa Thiong’o.
