Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani's debut novel, I Do Not Come To You By Chance, launches in the US and the UK this month (buy from Amazon). The novel charts the rise and fall of Kingsley, an engineering graduate who, when family fortunes fail, is forced to turn to his Uncle Cash Daddy (a 419-er) for help. I Do Not Come To You Chance is a tragi-comic depiction of how a 419-life can seep in as young Nigerians struggle to make ends meet.
I Do Not Come To You By Chance will be published by Cassava Republic Press later this year.
