Two fascinating coming-of-age novelists focus on love, agency, and resilience within Nigerian families. Stephen Buoro was the subject of an eight-way auction for his dazzling debut novel The Five Sorrowful Mysteries of Andy Africa. He’s joined on stage by US-based Chika Unigwe, whose unforgettable latest, The Middle Daughter, examines the challenges facing a 17 year old woman in a patriarchal society.
