(Written back in 2006 at AAU as a graduate school project)Ever since he was exposed to children’s books which his father, an English teacher, encouraged him to read, Bewketu Seyoum, 26, has been hooked on literature.
He is short, wide faced and often casually dressed with a messy beard. He often looks unbalanced perhaps because of the big bag he always carries. At face value, Bewketu does not look at all like an intellectual. His full name means something close to “achieving a height of authority for his knowledge.”
