A moving debut story collection centered on Nigerian women, as they build lives out of longing and hope, faith and doubt, the struggle to stay and the mandate to leave, and the burden and strength of love.
Born in Nigeria, Chinelo Okparanta was raised in the U.S. by her parents who were Jehovah's Witnesses. She talks to guest host Celeste Headlee about writing the truth about her home country, even if it's an ugly truth. More at NPR.org
