Nice one! I will seriously consider giving Granta a go!

Are you still interested in the black american authors. Just reading a book by Omar Tyree which is not bad at all. Deals with growing up in a black neighbourhood with pressure to mess with the opposite sex, drugs etc from a young girl's point of view.
Granta's brilliant, this month's issue was quite sombre sha......Chimamanda's piece was brilliant as usual.In fact I'm hoping this excerpt will turn into her next book.......:spiny:

They havent loaded up details of this new edition yet on the Granta website.

I'llput Omar Tyree on my wish list and maybe I might get it next month

Does anyone have an email addy for Ms Adichie?(Not a personal one, just a public one where she recieves emails from readers?). She's featured in this quarter's granta and I'm getting all excited hoping its going to develop into her new book.

Its about a young nigerian woman in america who's developing a latent sexual desire for the mother of the child she's babysitting:eek:. She herself is married to her college sweetheart from naija and is just finding her feet in america. She is also going through all the problems of settling into a new culture with a husband who she is fast realising she doesnt really know or love.

From the little excerpt published in Granta that I read I want to read it all oh!Unless its just one of her short stories
