Zimbabwean authors LANDS on Entertainment Weekly's 13 faces to watch in2013!

2013 is going to be a HUGE year for Bulawayo born author NoVoilet Bulawayo. First up, the Cornell University graduate just received the distinct honor of being include in Entertainment Weekly's 13 faces to watch in 2013. So dope!

 EW writes:

"The protagonist of Bulawayo's first novel, out May 21, may be named Darling, but this is no precious endeavor. The Zimbabwean author has already earned comparisons to Zadie Smith and J.M. Coetzee for her raw tale of a 10-year-old African girl's struggle to acclimate after immigrating to America"

Can't wait to read the book! You know I came to America around the age of 10 from Zimbabwe, so I am eager to read the book about our often untold story. I love to hear about Zimbabwean doing amazing things, she is definitely one to watch!
