Not only did Bulawayo’s debut novel make it on to the longlist for the Booker, it got to the shortlist. It’s won some other awards too. It seems if you have a child as your narrator, people are willing to overlook AN AWFUL LOT when it comes to the book itself. I found it a patience testing bore and can’t really see why people are loving it so much. The full review is on my blog here and my Booker Longlist challenge continues with my next book, The Marrying of Chani Kaufman. I hope I enjoy it more.
