Publisher Description

The emotional storms weathered by a mother and daughter yield a profound new understanding in a moving short story by the best-selling, award-winning author of Americanah and We Should All Be Feminists.

When Zikora, a DC lawyer from Nigeria, tells her equally high-powered lover that she’s pregnant, he abandons her. But it’s Zikora’s demanding, self-possessed mother, in town for the birth, who makes Zikora feel like a lonely little girl all over again. Stunned by the speed with which her ideal life fell apart, she turns to reflecting on her mother’s painful past and struggle for dignity. Preparing for motherhood, Zikora begins to see more clearly what her own mother wants for her, for her new baby, and for herself.

FIRST TIME CNA READER

I lost my passion for reading novels I don’t know where and when but I couldn’t find it for years.

I went through the motions reading this. I giggled, scoffed, rolled my eyes, and laughed at the different characters. I’m full of admiration and respect for this masterpiece.

My passion began to return during the lockdown and I’m glad I’m finally reading this author I’ve long admired from afar.

This is beautiful.
