Book: Pepper, by Sinmisola Ogunyinka
Where I got it: Free Kindle download
Briefly, it’s: a contemporary romance set in Calabar, Nigeria.
What I liked: The Nigerian authors that I’ve dipped into up to now have all been Big Names, dealing with Serious Topics. This is a much lighter book (though the author has her own serious agenda – read the book to find out), and much more accessible. I loved its unselfconscious Nigerian-ness. It brings the reader into a very different cultural world: that of ardent Evangelical Nigerian Christians. It was a great read, and I’m delighted I downloaded it.
