New Book Release on March 28th
You all know the popular Aminatta Forna. Author of The Memory of Love. Winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize Best Book Award 2011, short-listed for the Orange Prize for Fiction 2011, the IMPAC Award 2012, the Warwick Prize 2011 and nominated for the European Prize for Fiction 2013.
Interesting right? However, the novel was somewhat long-winded for my taste, a heavy reading, indeed. I hope I do not give the impression of being frivolous (I read a little bit of everything anyway). Actually, The Memory of Love is an award-winning novel; therefore, it is not a bad book. Only that, in my opinion, it was neither a delightful nor a voracious read; instead, it was long-drawn-out and far from simple.
Well, Aminatta has a new book expected to be released on March 28th 2013, it is called The Hired Man [294 pages] by Bloomsbury Publishing.
