Adichie, Afolabi, Habila and all our young literary geniuses following in the footsteps of Ben Okri are making me proud to walk tall as a Nigerian.

After Ben Okri, who among the new Nigerian writers can win the Booker Prize?
Diana Evans?

God bless.

Picked up Adichie's Half of a Yellow Sun last week. Should be interesting.
