"Essays From The Hermit's Lodge," is a collection of irreverent writings, scribbled from the forlorn hand of author Ali Kinteh. He is a flaneur and observer of these turbulent times. He offers adversarial musings about London, free speech, the culture of
celebrity and the fairground of politics.
He writes masterfully on his heroes: Darcus Howe, Yul Brynner, Lorraine Hansberry, Thomas Paine, John Hurt, Amitabh Bachchan, Neville Southall and his own brother Ousman Kinteh. He crafts eloquent pieces on hip hop, football, fatherhood and the pitfalls of juvenescence.
"We, who are of a deep-rooted tradition of learning and letters, write simply because we must, simply." - Ali Kinteh.
