A mystery, African style. Set in Nigeria, but with elements familiar to anyone who has traveled to Zambia or elsewhere in sub-Saharan Africa. A group of misfits comes together, and comes into money as well. A sweeping novel that captures many aspects of life in Africa, but from the struggles of rural life to the realities of the crowded big cities, corruption, and more than a little bit of determination and grit as well.
A Nigerian-born author, Ms. Onuzo is an inspiration to female writers across the continent. Elle.com listed “Welcome to Lagos” as one of the 32 novels you must read this summer!
