"Despite difficult material (i.e. childhood sexual assault, miscarriage), this book about a multigenerational Nigerian family is still an utter comfort novel, with lyrical prose and food and love at the heart of this queer story. A rich narrative parsing of familial trauma with magical realism elements. Ekwuyasi makes a difficult story tender to read."
