Absolutely brilliant. This book is sizzling with life. Totally underrated! The easiest five stars I’ve given to a book this year. NoViolet Bulawayo’s novel, We Need New Names, is an extension of her Caine prize-winning short story, “Hitting Budapest”, about a girl coming of age in Zimbabwe and the United States of America—and boy, am I happy that his literature prize exists and that it enabled her to work some magic on her brilliant short story. This right here shows how important literary prizes and being given an opportunity (financially and platform-wise) are!!!
