Young writers start new chapter in Nigeria's literary history

This is truly exciting. Nigerian literature has really taken off. We on the ground have known this for ages, but now CNN take note, too. Beautiful.
"(CNN) -- A 19-year-old Nigerian undergraduate student has signed a two-novel deal with the British publisher Faber, making her its youngest ever woman author.
Chibundu Onuzo, a history student at King's College London, will have her first novel, "The Spider King's Daughter," published next year."
