My Sister, the Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite

Well this was fun. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Sisters. Murder. Stupid men. Loyalty. Lagos. And an ending that’s just one big 😏⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is not a challenging read, unless you are white and don’t know how to pronounce African names or Pigdin words & phrases (#guilty 🙋🏻‍♀️). For this reason I recommend the audiobook, even though as you can see that is not the route I chose. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
But it IS an edgy, darkly funny, beautiful book that was a perfect antidote to all the heavy nonfiction I’ve been getting into lately. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
This is a one-sitting read, great for poolside sitting, that Kelly Terry and I would really love to see as a Netflix limited series starting Lupita Nyongo & Octavia Spencer. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ll let you discover the rest for yourselves. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

(Personality included.)

Want to learn how to craft emails that inspire action and engagement WITHOUT the “tried and true” (cough: patriarchal) norms we’ve all been taught?

I’m doing it, and I can show you how to do it, too.

(But sometimes, I also like to write about the books I’m reading, or the creative process, or the entrepreneurial experience, or why I hate Steve Jobs, or how I met my BFF. I’ll send you emails like that, too.)
