I kept trying to catch her readings when I visited the UK last year but no luck. So I kind of envy those in Nigeria who will get to hear her.

What's ignorant about it? It's not like she is Buchi Emecheta or Zadie Smith. Give me a break..

It is not a fantastic book. I do not know why she won those awards. I could not finish the novel...so boring.
