In Spain, I Was Black At A Private University

A naughty devil ruled the boy’s will. That’s why they’re active in gangs, so they keep fighting, and those big cigars, tropical marijuana, jumping out of bed. After the diagnosis, the doctor prescribed a final treatment: a pendant with a white duck’s head, which the child can wear for three days and endure the stench of rotten meat. Palm í pedo’s body proved to be cheaper than the consulting center itself and had to be thrown into the main street nearby in the early morning. Estanislao Medina, a 31 year old Ecuadorian, discovered this and other events when he contacted teenagers in Malabo (300000 residents), who inspired his third novel, suspe. The memoir of a gang member (Africa divan), written with jigsaw puzzle technology, is full of Creole idioms.

Medina, a professor at Malabo’s Spanish Academy, did not become a major figure in publishing until a month ago, when the British magazine Granta included him in the 10-year selection of 25 young Spanish narrators, along with other writers such as Carlos Fonseca and Granada Cristina Morales of Costa Rica. After the discovery of writers such as Julian Barnes or Kazuo Ishiguro, the future Nobel Laureate in literature, the list of this newsletter reached the status of literary myth in the mid-1980s. Medina, the son of ELA Nguema community in Malaysia, where aspiring gangsters work, foresees a rising future. His self publication, which has not yet been reprinted, describes an island overwhelmed by pagan traditions that first survived after the Spaniards and then survived globalization. ” Our cultural genome, “he said, scoring it through a video conference.

This kind of identity also permeates into the political order, because the Witches of mengomo give and deprive power at will. In 1968, the first post colonial government led by Francisco Macias was reexamined as a legitimate government. During the 1979 uprising, they withdrew their support for the coup leader and current president Teodoro Obiang. Medina said, “when you like a boy, you ask him to cast a good spell and put him in your arms. If you want to hurt others, you have to pay a price and let a powerful spell come to them. China opened up rapidly after the discovery of oil in the 1990s, but neither the arrival of new immigrants nor the movement of Guineans around the world can stop this. ”

Medina is one of the prodigal sons of Equatorial Guinea, which has the highest per capita income in Africa. He went to the same center, where he taught today and had connections with the children’s Church in Madrid, where he later studied as a teacher, thanks to the scholarships of his father, a fisherman, and his mother, a farmer. When he arrived in the Spanish capital, he was confident that a common language would help their integration, and that was all: “I’m black at a private university. Some teachers let me childish, with a false smile to cover up my micro uprooted This kind of “hypocrisy” still burns in his heart, especially when he remembers some puns made up by his classmates to laugh at him. His accent runs counter to him, and the twists and turns of Pidgin or Creole also run counter to him. Today, the strategic use of Creole makes his works more resounding. Poetic justice.

Back home, he found a desolate literary home “We lack a Book Culture, there are few bookstores, there are no publishing houses,” said the author, who, when he was five years old, wolfed down the spider man hat his brother got at the seminar. Medina then came up with the idea of “stimulating reading through nearby stories,” which challenged Malawians. In his first novel Baroque: the owl’s child (2016), he shaped the life of the community: the smell of onions and peanuts, the smell of smoked fish and ripe fruit. It rebuilt the installation of its first satellite antenna and expanded the television supply to Guinean households in 2002, limiting it to an active national channel until 4 p.m. today. Spanish TV series caused a sensation, as did Francesco montedioca’s weather forecast.

Despite the interference of Spanish culture, his parents never told him about the colonial era “Politics is a veto issue at many conference tables in Guinea,” Medina said, noting that the repression of the Messia era, which is engraved in collective memory, was the main reason for silence. In one of his latest books, gossip is spread by a fictional community called EPAGE, “like a noisy yellow bird singing all the time.” His neighbors had no choice but to argue and drink beer all day long, and the heated conversation quickly turned into a large-scale quarrel, sometimes even a machete. Young protagonists grow up in the context of violence. ” They are often portrayed as executioners, but these children are victims of their elders, “the author said.

Medina wanted to put it on record and interviewed more than a dozen people. Because they represent the band, they have to follow strict aesthetic standards, no sportswear or flip flops. No absurd boasting, no hidden weapon. ” His story left me in this place, and I had to ask myself what I would do in such a life, “he recalled. Father abandonment is a common situation, often due to the conscience of the Bantu patriarch, who brought dozens of children to the world and ultimately took care of their mother. At home, a salary rarely meets the most basic needs. The homeless are stepping stones to robbery or menus. Medina insists on her teaching mission: “I want you to read. When they do, the country will change forever. “
