Angolan Author Wins Prize

Saw this article on the BBC News website today. there's no bookstore in Lobito, so I haven't seen this book. Nice to see that an Angolan author gets recognition, though.
The Book of Chameleons by Angolan journalist and author Jose Eduardo Agualusa has won this year's Independent Foreign Fiction Prize.
...Boyd Tonkin, judge and literary editor of The Independent, called it "a delightful, moving and revealing novel about modern Africa".
