I’m very pleased that The Black Nile has been named one of the Village Voice’s Best Books of 2010, joining the likes of Patti Smith, Milan Kundera, Jennifer Egan, and The Anthology of Rap. This comes on the heels of a swell December 5 write-up by Joshua Hammer in The New York Times Sunday Book Review.
Visa officials permitting, I’ll be back in Sudan next month, covering the January 9 referendum for an obscure online journal.
Until then, Happy Holidays. (That’s The Black Nile‘s paperback cover image, by the way.)
