Join Nigerian-British writer Irenosen Okojie and the co-hosts of Not Another Book Podcast for a bold and honest conversation on Okojie's experiences as a novelist and short story writer, the joys of storytelling, surreal tales, disrupting narratives and her forthcoming short story collection Nudibranch and novel Curandera.

Not Another Book Podcast is brutally honest, nuanced, and witty. The show is the third podcast to launch from the ShoutOut Network's 'Next Generation of Voices' line-up. Hosted by BooksAndRhymes, BookShyBooks and PostColonialChild, the trio want to help the publishing industry evolve and shape what future literature critics look and sound like.
