My non-response and my endorsement

I’m not going to respond to Orange Prize hoopla again, because I still feel the same way I felt last year and the year before. This year let me just say that I like anything that promotes good books, and as good books by women tend to be my favourite kinds, this list is usually the one I like best. The longlist is a brilliant selection of books to be read and three I’ve read already that wholly deserve to be included.

I’ve read Half of a Yellow Sun by Chimamanda Ngochie Adichie, Alligator by Lisa Moore, and Afterwards by Rachel Seiffert. Each was extraordinary in its own way, I loved the first and third the best, and I am totally putting my bets on Adichie. If the right people her book, I think it could change the world.

One thought on “My non-response and my endorsement”

    I loved Purple Hibiscus, Adichie’s first novel, and I’m dying to read Half of a Yellow Sun. She’s an unbelievably talented writer, and deserves whatever accolades come her way.
