Helon was asked (by Jide Bello) which of our books he liked the most. He first mentioned Teju Cole's Every Day is for the Thief which he said captures everyday life in Lagos brilliantly. Then he mentioned Diana Evans - he knew Diana from his time on the faculty of the creative writing programme at UEA (she was doing an MA there at the time).
Its nice finally to start to have a reasonable range of books on offer. This time next year, we'll have many more cracking reads available as far under N1000 as possible.
