In a profile published in Uganda's The Monitor newspaper, writer Doreen Baingana discusses, amongst other things, the extent to which aspects of her short stories are sourced from real life. "The thing that is important is not whether it's true or not," she says. " I want to get at the emotional and psychological truths about certain social situations. The point whether it happened to me or not is irrelevant. Is it true to life? Does it make people reflect on their own lives and the decisions they have made?" Read the profile online.

Baingana is the author of a collection of linked short stories about the lives of three sisters growing up in Uganda, Tropical Fish: Stories Out Of Entebbe. Read the title story online.
