African Literature on Instagram is so much fun to curate. It allows us to tell the story of contemporary African fiction through images. [Click HERE to see the ones you’ve missed]

This week’s edition welcomes Chibundu Onuzo, the newest inductee into the African literary instagang. You can find her at @chibundu.onuzo.

Onuzo is a UK-based Nigerian author. She wrote Spider King’s Daughter, a Romeo and Juliet inspired novel about a Lagos street hawker who falls in love with a rich girl.

Onuzo made her Instagram debut with loads of photograph capturing her hip and beautiful life as a author.

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.
