Oprah for Short Stories

Oprah finally did some good to short story writers –she picked Uwem Akpan’s short story collection Say You’re One Of Them as her choice; a book about Nigerian children. This was the first time Oprah blessed a story collection.
“This is a first for me because each one of these five stories really just left me gasping. Just an incredible book.” Oprah said. Akpan is a Jesuit priest in Nigeria.
