This Month

Jeanluc Uddoh

Lucan, County Dublin

A lot of my friends are very artistic and I think everyone, especially here, in the growing arts culture, everyone needs to know how to value themselves.

What is your favourite book right now?

My favourite book right now would be Never Split The Difference by Chris Voss. It’s a book about negotiations and you know there’s negotiation in every aspect of life. Something as little as in your house where you’re trying to get out of chores or whatever, or you know, trying to do less chores than your siblings, it’s always a negotiation.

What book stands out most from your childhood?

The book that stands out from my childhood would be Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, Nigerian author, feminist. It was a book about the Nigerian civil war.

What book from elsewhere would you recommend to a Dublin friend?

The book I’d recommend to a Dublin friend would be Real Artists Don’t Starve by Jeff Goins. A lot of my friends are very artistic and I think everyone, especially here, in the growing arts culture, everyone needs to know how to value themselves.
