    "After a discussion with a friend, I realized I did not know much about African Literature. As a book junkie, this glaring omission in my catalog disturbed me. I looked up some recommended books and The Healers popped up on the top of the list. What a great buy! Not only was it about a topic I was interested in, but it highlighted the talent of African authors as well."
