4.0/5 Goodreads

To the dismay of her mother, Bolanle marries into a polygamous home and becomes the fourth wife of Baba Segi. She is a university graduate and as such highly prized by her new husband. But even graduates must produce children and her husband's persistent bellyache is a sign that things are not as they should be.
Bolanle only wants a quiet life, but the other wives disapprove of her, and fear she may unlock their well-guarded secret. Lola Shoneyin weaves a witty, exuberant story of determined women and big surprises in this beloved modern classic.

"A funny and moving story told with love and compassion... a jewel of a novel" - Petina Gappah
"She finds redeeming features in even her wickedest characters, and comedy even in violence and cruelty" - Guardian
