Our Curators said...

I'm a sucker for books about female friendships and mother-daughter relationships. This one, featuring the stories of Funmi, Zainab, and Enitan — three friends reuniting in Lagos when one of their daughter's is to be married — is meaningful, complicated, and rendered with such heart.

What the Critics are Saying

'Obaro writes beautifully about the complicated labor of friendship and parentage. Dele Weds Destiny explores caregiving as a kind of deferment, but also as discovery, of desire, of fury, of home'

Raven Leilani, author of Luster
