The “mistresspiece” narrates the experience of a British woman who returns to the West African country of her birth. The novel was published by Narrative Landscape Press (Nigeria), Virago Books (UK), and Catapult (US).
The book speaks directly to its readers making it a huge hit in the international publishing industry.
Haven’t you seen Sankofa on London and New York City billboards? It’s just everywhere now. A huge success not just for the African writer but the black continent as a whole as it amplifies its voice and excellence.
It has been reviewed by New York Times Books review, and has been recently picked as the October feature of Oscar winner Reese Witherspoon’s book club.
That’s not all 🙈
It’s going to be on Between the Covers on BBC2, a popular book show including getting featured on The View, an American TV show.
