I finally have in my possession a copy of the American edition of Lagoon (Simon and Schuster, July 14th). YES!!! Oh man, I enjoyed writing every word of this novel.
“LAGOON is a thing of magic and beauty. It grips you, right from the opening lines, and sucks you into the deep waters of its mystery. The different currents of Okorafor’s creation cross, clash and splash curiosity: ‘What next?’ you breathe with expectation, thirsting for more. Nnedi Okorafor is a master storyteller.”
-Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o, Author of WIZARD OF THE CROW
