Tonight: Shoneyin reads Baba Segi

“For a first novel, ‘The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives’ surprises as a powerful, mature and absorbing work of fiction… This novel will continue to haunt the reader’s imagination with suggestive ripples of wonder, sadness and delight long after the last page has been turned.”
– Biodun Jeyifo

“Politely defiant Shoneyin bends every cultural artefact and taboo in her brainy sensual path. This is a soap opera between the covers. I love the author's bold use of language and imagery. She teases, she taunts, she soothes with her words.”
– Ikhide Ikheloa

Lola Shoneyin reads the travails of Bolanle in Baba Segi's household in Lagos, tonight. Details below.

Aw wish I was there. So many literary things happening in Lagos this Christmas. And I'm glad you've started blogging again so at least, I can keep up with the gist.
