nigerian author, chigozie obioma

When your debut novel reaches the shortlist of the Man Booker Prize you have done well, very well. It happened to Obioma and his fishermen. When you write a book people have their opinions, they keep them to themselves or they vent them, try to involve the writer in their private opinions.

What does Obioma think about all this? It caused a bit of a stir in the literary pond.
