I’ve never really been personally invested in what book Oprah picks for her bookclub. Now I am. Not just because she picked a short story collection (yay!) but that she picked Uwem Akpan’s Say You’re One of Them
As some of you may recall, I had the honor of meeting Uwem and hanging out with him for a night last spring. I have to say the attention and praise soon to be heaped on him is well deserved. And, really, it’s thanks to him that I wrote that second-person ghost story that I love so much.
