Individual 'Modern Myths' pocketbook
One of three pocketbooks from the RadioBook Rwanda series. 'Modern Myths' is our green pocketbook. It features:
- 'Umuhigi W’inkuba', a short story by Jimmy Tuyiringire
- 'The Thunder Hunter', a translation of 'Umuhigi W’inkuba' from Kinyarwanda into English, translated by Denyse Umuhuza
- murals by artist collective, Souls
An exploration into Rwanda’s folklore, Jimmy Tuyiringire’s story follows Karemera as he tries to teach his western friend Deon about his family and his nation’s myths and traditional figures as well as seeking to uncover his own role in the thunder hunter’s story. Souls’ murals decorate an alleyway in Rwanda’s capital and depict three larger than life characters. Together, Tuyiringire and Souls are the Modern Myths radiobook.
The book has a unique format: paperback, die-cut interlocking cover and hand sewn.
