Waiting for an Angel is Helon Habila's first novel, although by the time it appeared in print its author's name was already in the public gaze. Awarded prizes for his poetry in the late 1990s, Habila had then won the 2001 Caine prize for African writing for his story "Love Poems" (later to form the first section of Waiting for an Angel). A Commonwealth prize followed for the completed novel. Now resident in the UK, Habila has announced a second novel, tentatively titled Measuring Time, for publication in 2005.
