meet the man of the house :

Plump and prosperous, he has seven children, but his desire for more just might be his undoing.

And his wives:

The first will stop at nothing to rule the house.

The second is shy and timid - her life is shadowed by fear

The third is a schemer with crimson lips and expensive tastes

And the fourth doesn't know it, but she has the power to unmask them all.


'A funny and moving story told with love and compassion'

Petina Gappah

'Rabelaisian... comically capturing the physical realities of ordinary Nigerian life'

Giles Foden

'Shoneyin's sharply written portrait of a family and a nation gripped by the past, yet surging into modernity, manages to be funny, disconcerting and violent all at once. An utterly gripping read'

Patricia Duncker

'This deft, lightly spun story packs quite a punch'
