Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani

Nwaubani’s debut novel, I DO NOT COME TO YOU BY CHANCE, has just been published in the UK (Weidenfeld & Nicolson) and US (Hyperion).

I’m almost done reading it, and will be doing a review of it as well. It’s a well-told story, a laugh-out-loud one, and the characters leap off the page at you. The Nigerian characters are TRULY-NIGERIAN :-), and one of the main characters, CASH DADDY, is one of the most interesting, most compelling, most lovable characters you will ever come across, whether in a novel or in real life.

Nwaubani has a very interesting and hilarious article, YOU DON’T HAVE TO SWIM ACROSS THE ATLANTIC, in NEXT, about her journey from novel-writer to published novelist. Read it here

Buy I DO NOT COME TO YOU BY CHANCE on Amazon, here

Read an interview with Nwaubani, on, here

I absolutely love her sense of humour!


One thought on “Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani

  1. The book was very good read indeed. I came across it while doing research for an article I wanted to write about 419. I immediately ordered it and found it be very interesting. The characters are very Nigerian too. Recommend it to anyone.

    Groeten, B.
