Yewande Omotoso's follow up to her award winning, South African-published novel "Bom Boy," has been called "radiant" by Publisher's Weekly and "a female take on Grumpy Old Men" by O Magazine. In her American debut, "The Woman Next Door," the Barbados-born novelist tells the story of two successful women- one black, one white- and how these sworn enemies eventually discover common ground in a post-apartheid Cape Town suburb. Hear Omotoso talk about the book Roxanne is calling "one hell of a read" and how she is still a practicing architect in this week's episode of "Just the Right Book."
