This is an interview that I did with Tade Thompson about a year ago when his novel, Rosewater, was first released. I ran parts of it on Ujima, but the quality of the recording was not good so I was a bit worried about putting the whole thing out.

However, Rosewater has just become the first ever winner of the Best Novel prize in the Nommo Awards from the African Speculative Fiction Society. It seems like there should be a lot of renewed interest in the book, and in Tade's other work, and that therefore I should share this podcast with you.

In the interview Tade talks about some of the ideas behind Rosewater, about his now released novella, The Murders of Molly Southbourne, and about writing a ghost story.
