Baba Segi’s house of misfits
Olushola Ojikutu enjoyed Lola shoneyin's much talked-about novel. Here is an excerpt of Ojikutu's review:
"Nonetheless, The Secret Lives of Baba Segi’s Wives is a book which elucidates the intricacies inherent in the typical polygamous Nigerian home. And the wonderful use of language and grammar, save for a few editing oversights, ensure that it is an enjoyable read. Lola Shoneyin possesses a strong adventurous voice and is representative of the new crop of female writers who will undoubtedly play an important part in promoting Nigerian literature."
