Angola: Writer Joao Miranda Reedits Nambuangongo Romance

Luanda — The love story entitled "Nambuangongo", written by Joao Miranda, launched in 1998, will be reedited next September, said Thursday in Luanda, the author of the work at the Angolan Writers Union (UEA), at the launch of his latest book entitled "Hebo".

According to the author, the reason for the reissue of his first work relates to it being sold out in the market, as well as "the interest shown by certain university academic circles, especially in Brazil where a few colleges teach Angolan literature."

Joao Miranda explained that "the book will undergo minor adjustments and corrections, however, it will not change the essence of the work and will soon begin to be marketed in Luanda," he stressed.

A founding member of the Union of Angolan Journalists (UJA), Joao Miranda is likewise a member of the Angolan Writers Union (UEA), lawyer, diplomat, former foreign minister and current governor of the province of Bengo.

After publishing "Nambuangongo" (1998), the debut work of world literature, he wrote "Pathelo-to-Kuma - the smart boy," released four years after the first, and "Hebo" his third literary production.

Writer Joao Miranda, graduated in law, also has a "Certificat d'Etudes Approfondies" in Diplomatic Law.
