Uwem Akpan SJ’s acclaimed book, “Say You’re One of Them” is Oprah’s 2009 Book Club Selection, and acclaimed as one of the best books of the year by Wall Street Journal, Washington Post Book World, Entertainment Weekly.
Akpan was born and reared in Nigeria. He was ordained as a Jesuit priest in 2003 and received his MFA in creative writing from the University of Michigan. I bought this book today at one of my favorite bookstores called Borders. You can visit www.sayyoureoneofthem.com.
