Debut Novel "Nothing Comes Close" makes the list of Africa Book Club Best Books of 2012
Nothing Comes Close (by Tolulope Popoola) published by Accomplish Press in November 2012, has been featured in a list of best books by African writers in 2012. Africa Book Club compiled the list based on the books they read and reviewed in 2012.
Daniel Musiitwa, the managing editor, said "Our 2012 list includes the top picks from our team of reviewers, that is, books they read and recommended as deserving to be on the list. We also scoured the continent (and, of course, the Internet) to find books about Africa or by African authors that generated the most buzz, received literary awards, or made the bestseller lists."
Nothing Comes Close was featured in the fiction category, alongside other exciting books such as: The Spider King’s Daughter (by Chibundu Onuzo), Daughters Who Walk This Path (by Yejide Kilanko), On Black Sisters Street (by Chika Unigwe) and No Time Like the Present (by Nadine Gordimer).
According to the reviewer, "Nothing Comes Close" makes for a refreshing read – certainly a departure from other African stories that mostly center on the continent’s instabilities."
