A timely collection of interconnected stories about the experiences of Nigerian migrants making their way in Europe, centred around Prosperous and her husband Agu, and the various visitors who gather at their apartment in Belgium. These ten tales explore their struggles and triumphs, from unhappy marriages (of convenience or otherwise), and the pain of homesickness and loneliness, to dealing with religious fervour and exorcism. Award-winning author Chika Unigwe provides a very human slant on the issues of migration so prevalent in contemporary discourse, writing with humour and acute observation.
