About Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani

This year's book selection was written by a young, emerging writer who lives in Nigeria. Her experiences as a child serve to inform her writing, an activity which she began when she was about 10 years old. By the time she was 15, Nwaubani had been selected for several writing awards, including as best poet and playwright in her school.

She wrote her first novel, I Do Not Come To You By Chance, in just two months. After you have checked out this recent interview for more information about what inspires her, then get yourself a copy and get reading!
