a colleague said to me about Ayobami Adebayos searing debut novel, Stay with Me and not sadistically Taking place in Nigeria, it s the story of Yejide and Akin a young married couple who are experiencing fertility issues When the in laws solution is a second wife, they conspire separately to save their relationship, with devastating consequences I quickly gathered what my colleague meant much of this novel is a series of unfortunate events So much so, and sometimes to such cinematic extremes, that when Adebayo interjects humor into the narrative, its easily mistaken for something sinister even when it involves breastfeeding a goat But her gift is making these extremes make sense After all, its some of our most intimate and profound struggles that can compel us to react in the craziest of waysways that just might destroy what was meant to be preserved Adebayo is such a skilled storyteller that you will forgive Yejide and Akin some serious trespasses you will weep for their once happy union that buckles so spectacularly beneath the weight of cultural pressures pressures that warp their sense of what constitutes a worthwhile life The couples efforts to disentangle their true desires from the ones tradition and society have foisted upon them is what imbues Stay with Me with unexpected power, and heart You definitely gotta read it Erin Kodicek, Book ReviewShortlisted
