“This enchanting debut is an affectionate portrait of three women at middle age, cannily exploring the ways the self is forged in youth. With an admirably light touch, Tomi Obaro documents how class, race, faith, and power define the lives of women in Nigeria and America, past and present.” Rumaan Alam, author of Leave the World Behind
Toni Obaro is an editor at BuzzFeed News. She lives in Brooklyn.
