Nikki May – You’re Booked

This was so much fun! Get ready for a funny, frank and fulfilling conversation with the brilliant Nikki May! Nikki’s debut novel Wahala was a former Steal of the Week and one of our favourite books in recent times. It’s currently being adapted for TV and was recently shortlisted for the CWIP prize. We talked to Nikki about the problems associated with reading as a kid in Lagos, favourite food books, spies, crime and dystopias and what Nikki believes is the perfect book.
