Ijeoma Umebinyuo is a brilliant writer. There are no ifs and buts about it. When you read her poems and prose, you feel every word as if she was able to enter into your heart and speak your mind. Her style is blunt but poetic and she does not shy away from difficult life topics from the down-side of love to depression to domestic violence. Hers is an afro-feminist voice worth listening to. Ijeoma (also my namesake) recently released a book called Questions for Ada. "Ada" in Igbo means first daughter and so in turn a book for all the women out there. If her blog posts are anything to go by, Questions for Ada is bound to be powerful, defiant, and relevant!
