Thing Around Your Neck

Last week, was at Chimamanda’s book reading to coincide with her new book going on sale nationally in America. Ran into a few bloggers and Teju Cole then went to dinner with Chimamanda and her peeps including the beautiful Zadie Smith and Lola Ogunnaike of CNN

Hi Funmi, I can't believe I can reach you here!

Anyway, its so difficult to find Chimamanda's books, wonder why? I'm in Kaduna/Kano axis, can you tell me where to find them around here?

As a writer (wannabe???), I am in awe of this lady's talent.. can I also reach her somehow?

I was so excited about her new book, having read the others. But was disappointed that the signing in Los Angeles was cancelled without announcement, and I drove there 70mi...I guess that's what makes me a super fan.
