Marlon James: The Booker winner turns to high fantasy in Africa | Sydney Morning Herald | February 15, 2019
This interview was only supposed to last an hour, and we've been chatting now for nearly two. I thank him for his time and again hatless, he walks me to the subway stop. "You're really not cold?" I ask him. "No, man, seriously spend a winter in Minnesota and you'll know cold."
