La nouvelle « Skinned » de Lesley Nneka Arimah, parue dans McSweeney’s Quarterly Concern, a reçu le prestigieux Caine Prize for African Writing. Selon le Dr. Peter Kimani, président du jury du Caine Prize,  « Lesley Nneka Arimah’s Skinned defamiliarizes the familiar to topple social hierarchies, challenge traditions and envision new possibilities for women of the world. Using a sprightly diction, she invents a dystopian universe inhabited by unforgettable characters where friendship is tested, innocence is lost, and readers gain a new understanding of life. »

Sigourney Weaver va interpréter le personnage d’Hildy Good, héroïne du roman THE GOOD HOUSE d’Ann Leary, dans une adaptation cinéma produite par Amblin Partners, société de production fondée par Steven Spielberg.
« Leary writes with humor and insight, revealing both the pure pleasure of drinking and the lies and justifications of alcoholism, the warmth Hildy feels toward others when she drinks and the desperation that makes her put alcohol before the people she loves. The result is a layered and complex portrait of a woman struggling with addiction, in a town where no secret stays secret for long. » —The New York Times
