Measuring Time

Helon Habila's new novel Measuring Time finally hit the shops in the UK this week. It is a wonderful novel and will confirm his reputation as one of the finest writers on the continent. Click here for a review in today's Observer. Measuring Time and the earlier novel, Waiting For An Angel, will be published in West Africa by Cassava Republic later this year.

What little (thanks to Talatu-Carmen) I have read of Habila hints to me of his writing acumen. I can't wait to read both novels.

since fred is singing my name here, i'll add my comment. I'm currently in the middle of Measuring Time. In a moment of weakness while stuck on a thesis transition Friday (my thesis is on Habila's first novel Waiting for an Angel), I picked it up and read to the middle before I could stop myself. I'm now having to discipline myself not to just stop everything I'm doing to finish it. I tell myself it will be my treat for finishing revisions on my thesis... {-; So, far I'm enjoying it a great deal.
