For Baba Segi, his collection of wives and children are signs of his virility. All runs smoothly in the polygamous home until wife number four arrives, Bolanle is a soft spoken university graduate who is quickly ostracised by her illiterate co-wives. However she is determined to give Baba Segi the children he expects. Her failure to conceive exposes a dark family secret. This revelation has devastating consequence for the entire household.
More than a cautionary tale about polygamy. The Secret Lives of Baba Segi's Wives is about identity, belonging and the lies that bind. One of the best novels I've read on the Nigerian experience.
A funny moving story told with love and compassion......a jewel of a novel.
The Secret Lives Of Baba Segi;s Wives is a trump of life over adversity,a joyful ode to the sensual mystery and resilience of the human spirit.
