Everything Good Will Come by Sefi Atta

Nigerian writer Sefi Atta penned the novel Everything Good Will Come, which focuses on two women friends from childhood to adulthood. It’s a coming-of-age story of sorts, and intended to show different paths available to women in today’s Nigeria.

I didn’t adore this book with all my heart, but it’s a good read, especially if you are a feminist who likes to read novels about women in different parts of the world. I did enjoy learning more about Nigeria, which seems to have an incredibly rich literary scene, but if you are going to read only one novel from a Nigerian writer, let it instead be Half of a Yellow Sun.

This makes four books I’ve blogged about for the Africa Reading Challenge, adding to the following:

Plus I’ve already read Mating by Norman Rush and just need to blog it. Coming soon!
