It’s been such a hectic week. I can’t wait to have a relaxing weekend. I have family visiting from out of town, so I’m envisioning delicious dinners and great conversations.

Wishing you all a lovely weekend!

Meanwhile, to keep things fun here at Brittle Paper, here are pictures of African novels sourced from Instagram.

Enjoy!

I hold a doctorate in English from Duke University and recently joined the Marquette University English faculty as an Assistant Professor. 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.
