And here it should be mentioned that Nayomi’s debut novel, Island of a Thousand Mirrors, was long-listed for the Man Asia Prize. The story of that book—its arduous, unconventional road to publication and eventual glory—should be heartening to anyone out there slaving away in obscurity. Nayomi was a lot of fun. She’s originally from Sri Lanka but immigrated to the States as a child by way of Nigeria. Pretty sure she’s the first Sri Lankan-American author to appear on this program. Happy to share this episode with you guys.
