Oohh...I've never heard of this award. Thanks!

On that list, I've only read Half A Yellow Sun, which is a great book. I would love to see her win!

(I also just read a short piece in The New Yorker about the houseboy her family had when she was growing up who died on a peacekeeping mission to Sierra Leone-it was a very good piece)
