Oprah picked “Say You’re One Of Them” as her 63rd book club selection, the first time she has chosen a book of short stories, saying these stories “left me stunned and profoundly moved.”
The collection, published in 2008, includes five separate stories from the perspective of an African child that were described as capturing the resilience of children growing up in the face of unimaginable devastation.
Uwem Akpan, who runs a parish in Lagos, told Entertainment Weekly that he was “very, very humbled” to be chosen by Oprah.
