Reviews //
“Nnedi Okorafor writes glorious futures and fabulous fantasies. Her worlds open your mind to new things, always rooted in the red clay of reality. Prepare to fall in love with Binti.” —Neil Gaiman, New York Times bestselling author of American Gods

“Binti is a supreme read about a smart, edgy Afropolitan in space! It’s a wondrous combination of extra-terrestrial adventure and age-old African diplomacy. Unforgettable!” —Wanuri Kahiu, award-winning Kenyan film director of Punzi and From a Whisper

“Okorafor’s writing is even more beautiful than I remember it being in Binti, evocative and sharply elegant in its economy….What Binti: Home says, ultimately, is that traveling the galaxy is relatively easy compared to understanding ourselves and each other–and that this is crucial, necessary work.” —NPR
