Binti scifi novella book cover

Binti is a wonderful and surprising novella. Okorafar takes us inside real and imagined societies and through first contact with a strange (not anthropomorphic – hurray!) alien species, but the story centers on a real life human society that will seem alien to most Anglo readers.

Binti’s enigmatic relationship with her own culture – honoring her heritage while moving far beyond to attend an interstellar university – is beautifully evoked and Okorafor is not afraid to interrupt action with beguiling descriptions. This book proves science fiction is a lot more than most people imagine.
