A Spell of Good Things by Ayobami Adebayo

Staff Pick


Eniola and Wuraola have never met but their lives do a delicate dance together. Eniola lives a life of grinding poverty, where he begs for his school fees and doesn't know where the next meal is coming from. Wuraola is on her way to becoming a doctor and about to wed her city's most eligible bachelor. Modern Nigeria, however, has a way of pulling the most unlikely characters together. Adebayo's Booker-prize nominated novel is a masterful anatomy of inequality, told with heart, horror and, ultimately, hope.
