  1. I can make out Toni Morrison and Chimamanda Adichie. I have read Bluest Eye by TM and three of Adichie’s novels, Purple Hibiscus, This Thing Around Your Neck and Half of a Yellow Sun 🙂

    Of I’m not mistaken, Louise Erdrich is in that top row; I’ve read many of her books but Painted Drum and the Last Report may be my favorites. Edwidge Danticat is in there; I quite enjoyed her novel Dew Breakers. I’ve had a copy of Helen Oyeyemi’s White for Witching on my TBR shelf for awhile because I enjoyed Icarus Girl and Mr. Fox so much. I’ve been meaning to reread Sandra Cisnero’s House on Mango Street. I only recognize Leila Ahmed because I caught a talk she gave, I’ve not been able to get a hold of any of her books yet.

      Good for you. I agree about liking Erdrich’s The Last Report and maybe her new Round House. I have Icarus Girl waiting on my shelf. Glad to have someone around whose read it. I liked Opposite House but felt there much I didn’t understand. I’m envious of your having heard Ahmed. I am very impressed with her thinking and writing.

        I haven’t gotten a chance to grab Round House-I’m eagerly anticipating its arrival at my library (it’s still stuck in “ordering”).
        I thought Icarus Girl was well done. It takes some aspects from horror stories but mostly is just a wonderful little novel about a girl who’s struggling to figure out where she belongs. I found it rather magical realist in a way.
        I actually ended up in Ahmed’s talk by mistake! I was in the wrong building (the lecture for class I was supposed to be in had the same room number) but didn’t realize it and after Ahmed’s introductory anecdote I was hooked and riveted. Very clear points that were elucidated in ways that transcended nationality. I loved it.

    I spy Suniti Namjoshi!

    Marie NDiaye in the bottom row! And I think that might be Shin Kyung-sook who wrote Please Look After Mom

  5. mdbrady says:

    Yes. You are right on both.

    I’m late to this game, but 13 is Elizabeth Nunez! 🙂 Also, Oyeyemi & Adichie are in the wrong order.
