I am reading and loving just now: Son of the House by Cheluchi Onyemelukwe-Onuobia. Dundurn bought it from Penguin South Africa. Wow, it is excellent! I am so sucked into this one—I can’t stop reading.
This debut Nigerian novel won the Best International Fiction Book Award in 2019, and it’s finally being published .The book features two women from different backgrounds—one a privileged woman living on her own, and the other a young housemaid—who reflect on their lives while being held captive together. Covering four decades of history, the book is ultimately a story of women navigating a world that doesn’t welcome them. The cover is gorgeous. Fabulous early reviews including MS Magazine.
