Yet another Adichie funny face! Adorable or what? [Click HERE if you missed the other one.]

This photograph of Ms. Adichie spotting a funny place was taken a few days ago at the on-going Farafina Trust Writing Workshop.

Have a lovely weekend!

By the way, more photos from the workshop next week.

I love teaching African fiction and contemporary British novels. Brittle Paper is the virtual space/station where I play and experiment with ideas on how to reinvent African fiction and literary culture.

    Verdant an image! It’s as though she’s got a raving knack for curly hairdos. And in the whole of her crafts hair descriptions poke and poke out steadily like a tumbling whale. This lady meant a lot to me. She inspired me to write and write until Brittle Paper accepts me first then ‘fiam’ on the peak i go. Dont mind my badamoning bla bla bla, BP understands. Or dont you?
