Our thanks to Dr. Robert Leonard, a professor of linguistics at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y., who provided invaluable assistance with the Swahili pronunciations in "An Ex-Mas Feast".
Also, listen to audio from The New Yorker Festival readings and panel discussions, recorded live in New York City.
All three stories I thought were very descriptive and real. Everyone can relate in one way or another. But, I strongly feel that the profanity in these books was very unnecessary and it had me cringing every time a word was uttered. Maybe this is something that could be considered or taken into account for future debut fiction. Even with this one downfall, this is a great way to introduce up and coming authors.
