The Caine Prize for African Writing

My good friend, Ada Udechukwu, has been shortlisted for the Caine Prize and we are all glowing for her. They announce the prize winner in a few days and I am on pins and needles. She was nominated for her short story "Night Bus" which was published in The Atlantic Monthly's annual fiction issue last year. You can read an interview Ada gave about her life as a writer and visual artist and her story in The Atlantic here. Go, Ada, go!
