Week 5: ‘Stay with me’ (2017) by Ayòbámi Adébayò (Nigeria). Officially my new favourite author of all time! She takes you to the edge of despair, the height of excitement, then sobers you with unexpected choices. A complex tale of a Nigerian marriage under pressure from family to bear a child; and the painfully unexpected addition of a second wife. A tale you will not soon forget!
