It’s always nice to see readers comment on literature with a level of insight and nuance that seasoned literary scholars couldn’t muster in their wildest dream.

Twitter user @ILoveArmani has had everyone talking with a series of tweets classifying writers according to how they represent Nigeria in fiction. The observations are pretty on point and quite perceptive.

You may not agree with all the observations, but they bring up questions about writers imagining the continent differently. If nothing, at least, it shows us that there are as many Nigerias in fiction as there are writers.

Check out the tweets.


PS: Dear writers, readers are watching and they are judging you!
