In 2005, Taiye Selasi‘s essay “Bye-Bye Babar (Or: What is an Afropolitan?)” introduced her to the world… and the world to her generation of well-off, well-educated, well-traveled African immigrants. Taiye grew up in Boston but she is of Ghanaian and Nigerian descent. Her short story “The Sex Lives of African Girls” was included in the “Best Short Stories of 2012.” And her debut novel “Ghana Must Go” came out this month. Brendan chats with Taiye about shutting out one’s audience (in a good way), probable causes, and deceptive dresses.
