“And now a truly humbling moment: I was very pleased to receive, on 24 May 2010 (my birthday!) a document sent by email which shows that someone has been so impressed with my use of such devices in my columns in the Ghanaian Times that he has subjected my columns to serious study, in an M.Phil thesis, at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, and that he has passed with a mark of 75%!
To imagine that someone has become an M-Phil as a result of studying my writing, when I never went to University myself!
The scholar is called Nate Glover-Meki, and his thesis is entitled: “JOURNALISM, LITERATURE & CURRENTS OF THOUGHT IN MODERN GHANA – A CRITICAL STUDY OF CAMERON DUODU’S “LETTER FROM AFAR”.
I am, quite simply chuffed by this. If any publisher — or institution (such as the Ghana School of Communications at the University of Ghana, Legon) — is interested in publishing it so that it can be made available to a wider audience, they can contact me at:
I shall be glad to put them in touch with the author.
