Helen 'Icarus Girl' Oyeyemi's latest novel came out in the UK this week. Click here to read Kamila Shamsie's review in The Guardian.
I've always been a lurker so this is my first post but was prompted to 'speak' by the review I just read by Shamsie in the Guardian.'American Gods' by Neil Gaiman also deals quite deftly with the idea that 'the condition (migration)afflicts no one so profoundly as the gods.' It's a crazy rollercoaster ride of warring pantheons and American society and is also one of my favourite books. Hope 'The Opposite House' can compete as I find Oyeyemi quite 'whiny' despite the beautiful prose.
