First Timer

I interviewed Chinelo Okparanta for UMSL Daily, you should check it out.  Her new novel Under the Udala Trees is "sparse and haunting" as I said in the article, but I failed to mention that it is also beautiful and uplifting especially for anyone who believes in the importance of novels.  Chinelo was very cool to put up with a first time interviewer.
