>Subject: Kehinde by Buchi Emecheta
>Dear Mr Brians,
>Because of my job I had to read Emecheta's Kehinde a week ago. That was
>the first time I read something of her and I really enjoyed it.
>I work for a publishing house from Barcelona and my job consists mainly
>on reading books in English and/or Spanish but I have also to write a
>summary of the book and a sort of review or essay explaining my personal
>opinion, its literary techniques and its positive and negative aspects.
>I have also to think of the kind of people who will probably read it and
>I have to give a literary and commercial value (from 1 to 10). If the
>Chief of the Literary Department, after reading the different essays,
>thinks that the book will probably be a success then they publish it.
>When I finished Kehinde I wanted to know more things about the author
>and her other books so I tried in the WWW and surprisingly for me I
>found quite a lot of information referring the author and her background
>but I couldn't find anything about Kehinde. That is the reason why I'm
>writing to you. I would like to know if you have heard of someone that
>have already read the book in order to contact her/him and talk about it
>or if you know of some place in the WWW where I can find information
>about it. By the way, have you read it? What do you think of it? I'm
>sorry, I would not like to be unpolite asking directly these questions
>to you but this kind of job I have is very important for me and very
>interesting and I always try to do it the best I can. Buchi Emecheta is
>not a very famous author here in Spain but I personally liked her book
>very much and I would like to make it clear in my essay.
>Well I don't want to bore you any more; thank you very much for reading
>this and, please, if you have 5 minutes, e-mail me. Thanks a lot and
>sorry if my English is not very good!!
