I mentioned in an earlier post that I have high hopes for Uwem Akpan’s Say You’re One of Them.
Entertainment Weekly indicates my hopes will be fulfilled. Reviewer Jennifer Reese says that the stories are “so ravishing and sad that I regret ever wasting superlatives on fiction that was merely very good.” Needless to say, she gives it an “A” rating.
I won’t waste your time with a synopsis; read the review, order more copies, and put it in the hands of as many readers as possible.
If you need more convincing, you can read one of the stories, which was published in the New Yorker two years ago.
