Product description

Review

"Powerfully magnetic. . . . In the lineage of great works by Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. . . . A thoroughly contemporary--and deeply moving--portrait of a marriage." --The New York Times Book Review

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

"[A] stunning literary work [that] serves as both astute political commentary and unfolding mystery." --NPR

"Scorching, gripping, ultimately lovely." --Margaret Atwood, Twitter

"Powerful storytelling. . . . The story is ancient, but Adebayo imbues it with a vibrant, contemporary spirit." --San Francisco Chronicle

"Wise and deeply humane. . . . A powerfully affecting tale of love, loyalty, and betrayal." --Sarah Jessica Parker

"Stay With Me feels like a genre unto itself--a story that illustrates the necessity of hope and equality, but one that doesn't water down the challenges of realizing them." --Vogue

"A triumph--a complex, deeply felt exploration of love, marriage and family amid cultural and political upheaval." --Chicago Tribune

"A debut that marks the beginning of what should be a stunning career." --Goop

"Gorgeous. . . . Filled with big-hearted feelings and all kinds of female strength." --Bustle

"[A] phenomenal novel. . . . Beautiful. . . . A layered story of love, sacrifice and hope . . . Adebayo's debut is undoubtedly one of the best reads of this year." --Essence

"A kind of addictive African soap opera, set against the political chaos of Nigeria in the 1980s." --People

"A gut-wrenching tale of how wanting a child can wreck a woman, a marriage and a community. . . . Adebayo is surely a writer to watch." --The Economist

"Forcefully affecting. . . . Adebayo's compassionate chronicle of a fraught marriage speaks to broader national fears, making this family drama feel like an epic." --The Wall Street Journal

"Heartbreaking. . . . A story of complicated love teetering between tradition and modernity." --W Magazine

"A work of intimate yet powerful--and even, at times, shocking--storytelling that will . . . make your world bigger." --Elle

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

"With lyrical prose, Adebayo explores how far a woman will go to save her marriage." --Real Simple

"Powerful." --BuzzFeed

"A heartbreakingly beautiful story about love, marriage, and expectation." --Southern Living

"Adebayo's prose is a pleasure: immediate, unpretentious and flecked with whip-smart Nigerian-English dialogue." --The Sunday Times (London)
