    Reading the supplemental material is the way to go for those of you in the thick of it. I have found “The Kis Affair” to be particularly helpful. I also bought “Things Fall Apart” and am looking forward to making some comparisions. I’m not sure if I’ll get to it before the next class, but hopefully, over the summer.
