Bandele on Goodbye Lucille

Segun Afolabi's first novel, Goodbye Lucille, is now out in the UK by Jonathan Cape. The novel was reviewed by fellow Nigerian Biyi Bandele in last Saturday's Guardian Review. Bandele, playwright and author of The Street, was born in Northern Nigeria to Yoruba parents from the Southwest - like Afolabi.
Caine winner Afolabi's collection of short stories, A Life Elsewhere, was published in 2006. And Bandele's second novel, Burma Boy, will be published this summer.
