The Spider King's Daughter

by Chibundu Onuzo

A gripping, debut novel set in Nigeria. The fragile relationship of two teenagers contrasts with the compelling physical and moral battles to survive at all levels of society. This a vivid portrayal of the rich and destitute and of the noise, heat and scents of Lagos. It’s not only a shocking, thought-provoking expose of Nigerian society but also a well-plotted, well-written thriller.

wealth it would take to make such an oasis, green grass
watered by sprinklers while half of Lagos had no running
water.
