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

I absolutely love her sense of humour!
