Review

Shortlisted for the 2017 Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction

"[A] stunning debut novel.... At once, a gothic parable about pride and betrayal; a thoroughly contemporary--and deeply moving--portrait of a marriage; and a novel, in the lineage of great works by Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie.... Adebayo, who is 29, is an exceptional storyteller. She writes not just with extraordinary grace but with genuine wisdom about love and loss and the possibility of redemption. She has written a powerfully magnetic and heartbreaking book." --Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

"A bright, big-hearted demonstration of female spirit, as well as the damage done by the boundlessness of male pride." --The Guardian

"Ayobami Adebayo's taut, intimate debut novel, Stay with Me... careens backward and forward in time against a backdrop of politics, protests, crime and civil unrest... Close to Lauren Groff's Fates and Furies.... Conveyed with an operatic intensity that almost approaches the pitch of Elena Ferrante's The Days of Abandonment." --Anita Felicelli, The San Francisco Chronicle

"Stunning.... A work of intimate yet powerful--and even, at times, shocking--storytelling that will grow your sensitivity chip and make your world bigger, too." --ELLE

"An absolute must-read and a story that will be shared for many decades to come." --Emma Roberts, Refinery29

"Beautiful... Phenomenal... A layered story of love, sacrifice and hope... Adebayo's debut is undoubtedly one of the best reads of this year." --Lihle Z. Mtshali, Essence.com

Product Description

SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION
SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 WELLCOME BOOK PRIZE
LONGLISTED FOR THE 2018 INTERNATIONAL DYLAN THOMAS PRIZE

Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child. It is all her husband wants, all her mother-in-law wants, and she has tried everything. But when her relatives insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear.

Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 1980s Nigeria, Stay With Me is a story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the power of grief, and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood. It is a tale about the desperate attempts we make to save ourselves, and those we love, from heartbreak.
