ON MY TO READ LIST
Uncategorized March 6, 2014
Because the NYTimes said this:
…the greatest joy of reading Oyeyemi will always be style: jagged and capricious at moments, lush and rippled at others, always singular, like the voice-over of a fever dream.
And the LATimes said this:
The risks that Helen Oyeyemi takes in her fifth novel, “Boy, Snow, Bird,” are astonishing in their boldness.
Because she’s a wanderer:
Oyeyemi is from Strange Times. Raised in Britain by Nigerian parents, the 29-year-old five-time novelist isn’t even affiliated with a single home anymore: London, New York, Berlin, Barcelona, Budapest, Prague — who knows where she is doing her thing at any given moment?
There’s also the part about this book being a creative riff on fairy tale Snow White.
I want to know this chick. Has anyone read any of her other stuff? Has anyone read this?
