From Zamfara up country, to the Niger Delta down south, with a finale in Africa's most populous city, Lagos, this collection of stories and a novella are inspired by newspaper headlines and narrated by a range of Nigerian voices that are elevated to the realm of the sublime by Sefi Atta's distinctive, clinical narrative skill. "...written with quiet virtuosity. Atta's control of tone is remarkable" --Teju Cole "Sefi Atta is a brilliant artist...I have been very touched by the beauty and diversity and depth of these stories." --Uwem Akpan; author of 'Say You're One of Them' (Oprah Bookclub Selection) "...steady, quiet, and yet bold narrative voice...a story teller who is so in tune with the suffering and other life happenstances of her characters" --Mohammed Naseehu Ali; author of 'The Prophet of Zongo Street'
