THE SECRET LIVES OF BABA SEGI’S WIVES BY LOLA SHONEYIN
For Baba Segi, his collection of wives and children are signs of his virility. All runs smoothly in the polygamous home until wife number four arrives. Balance is a soft-spoken University graduate who is quickly ostracised by her illiterate co-wives. However, she is determined to give Baba Segi the children he expects. Her failure to conceive exposes a dark family secret. This revelation has devastating consequences for the entire household.
With sardonic humour, Lola Shoneyin unravels the rotten innards of this polygamous household in a cleverly-plotted story.
