"Reading the Ceiling"
I started reading "Reading the Ceiling", by Dayo Forster, yesterday. I am only in a hundred pages, but I am completely drawn into the story. The prose gets really, heartwarmingly beautiful at times, and I guess being a Gambian some things resonate with me in ways they wouldn't with someone who has never lived here all their life. I will post a review when I finish reading it, but even now I would highly recommend it, not as "Gambian literature" (as in: read this, and excuse that it may be a bad book, the prose does not flow, the plot does not make sense, because it was written by a Gambian), but just as a good book anyone could enjoy.
