TJ Benson (Writer/Photographer) Tram 83 by Fiston Mwanza Mujila
TJ Benson’s last good read is ‘Tram 83’ by Fiston Mwanza Mujila. “It’s a wonder. The language is something I hope to emulate,” he said.
Benson is author of ‘We Won’t Fade into Darkness,’ a collection of short stories that explores the fate of an abusive father, an Ogbanje in a near post-apocalyptic Nigeria and more. His short story ‘An Abundance of Yellow Paper’ was the joint winner of the Amb-HBF contest in 2016. He was the first runner-up for the 2016 Short story Day Africa Prize themed ‘Migration’, and he is a two-time writer-in-residence at the Edebi Writers Residency in Nigeria.
