AM Spring Reads

Sunday, March 29, 2015



This Spring, I’m looking forward to re-immersing myself into some great literature. I’m particularly excited about the wave of  extraordinary young talent emerging from the African Diaspora. These are my must reads:

1)Being Abbas el Abd byAhmed Alaidy (Egypt)
2)Ruby by Cynthia Bond (U.S.)
3)Foreign Gods Inc by Okey Ndibe (Nigeria)
4)Land of Love & Drowning by Tiphanie Yanique (Caribbean)
5)The Memory of Love by Aminata Forna (UK/Sierra Leone)
6)The Book of Night Women by Marlon James (Caribbean)
7)Lyrics Alley by Leila Aboulela (Sudan)
