Say You Are One of Them - New York Times Bestseller!

This is good news. Say You Are One Of Them has made it to the New York Times bestseller list.
This, I think, has deep implications for African literature. It means that many more people have now been exposed to the riches of African literature. They will, I think, look out for more works, more good stories, that we all know, are there. As I said earlier somewhere, it means that more literary agents and editors will no longer reject your work with such flimsy excuses like this one: good story, well-written, but interest in African literature is not there.
So, this said, I should get back to work. You, too, dear friend.
By the way see the thing for yourself. ENJOY!
