The ‘ironic’ question of Nigerian writing

The Bookshop-saga is still going on. It all started with the first episode in France on a stage. A question was asked at the godmother of the festival. The godmother is Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, the famous Nigerian writer. She was asked about the presence of bookshops in Nigeria. The audience was stunned, so were many other people.

Maybe very soon we get a song to raise money for Africa: “Do they know what bookshops are?” Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
