Publisher Description

A new novel from the winner of the Wole Soyinka Prize for Literature in Africa

Deola Bello, a 39-year-old Nigerian expatriate in London, is dissatisfied with being single and working overseas. Deola works as a financial reviewer for an international charity, and when her job takes her back to Nigeria in time for her father's five-year memorial service, she finds herself turning her scrutiny inward.

In Nigeria, Deola encounters changes in her family and in the urban landscape of her home, and new acquaintances who offer unexpected possibilities. While there, she must navigate both the expectations of others, and the difference between foreign images of Africa and the realities of contemporary Nigerian life. Deola's urgent, incisive voice captivates and guides us through the intricate layers and vivid scenes of a life lived across continents.

With boldness and refreshing honesty, A Bit of Difference looks at the complexities of our contemporary, globalised world, through a very human lens.
