That familiarity is what Id emphasize. Myself, I love whats outré and of-the-moment about Girl, Woman, Other. I was at once won over by its fast and loose way with the English sentence, quasi-colloquial, with minimal punctuation and capitalization, sometimes breaking down into short stacks of single lines. Yet it doesnt take an aesthete to find the prose accessible. Anyone can appreciate Evaristos sensitivity to the passions in her people.
