Essayist, novelist, playwright, poet and screenwriter Chris Abani has sacrificed for his art. The author has been incarcerated three times in his native Nigeria for his work exploring political coups and human rights abuses, and in a Ted Talk, Nobel Prize-winning author Harold Pinter called Abani's poems about his prison experiences "the most naked, harrowing expression of prison life and political torture imaginable." Recipient of honors including the PEN USA Freedom-to-Write Award, the PEN Hemingway Book Prize and Guggenheim Award, Abani gives voice not only to the importance of human rights but also humanity's responsibility to protect them.
