Ken Bugul is a Senegalese writer who lives where her soul is anchored, in Africa. Ken Bugul is the style. In her work and in her life. She embodies energy and the desire for freedom. Novel by novel, she composes a painting of her life as a woman, a picture of her passions, her pains and the relations between her continent and the West. Encounters, conflicts, sparks and beauty shape everything. Wherever we come from, wherever we live in this world, Ken Bugul's laughter is our laughter, her tears are our tears, her hope is our hope. Laughter has the same sound, tears have the same salty taste, hope has the same freshness.
Writing, says Ken Bugul, means to enchant the senses and senses have no colour.
