Timothy Ogene has a catalogue of academic achievements from some of the world’s most prestigious institutions. He currently lectures at Harvard University, as well as writing fiction and poetry and he tells Georgina Godwin about his second novel, ‘Seesaw’, which tells the story of a writer plucked from obscurity in Nigeria to attend an American writing programme. With a wry and light touch, ‘Seesaw’ explores the world of modern academia, cultural dislocation and what happens when the two collide.
