    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
