  1. Thanks for the mention and for sharing the link.I have only read Americanah,The Fishermen and The Book of Memory from that list.Interested in a number of books there especially the ones set in Harare.Have you read any of the titles there yet?

    • My pleasure! I appreciate everything you share.

      I haven’t read any of these books (but I will!). I’m nearly finished Americanah and I feel like I have learned a lot. I had no idea that natural hair was such a political issue. 😦


      • Oh I’m glad that Americanah is turning out to be a great read for you:-)There’s so much controversy over natural hair.I almost lost my job last year for option to have dreadlocks.Its just hair but it attracts so much discussion.Enjoy the book 🙂
