Ayobami Adebayo contributes to new essay collection from acclaimed Nigerian writers, Of This Our Country

Whilst it’s impossible to capture the essence of Nigeria in one story, its writers have given readers the opportunity to experience the many different parts that make up Africa’s most populous nation.

In OF THIS OUR COUNTRY, acclaimed and award-winning Nigerian writers go a step further, and describe their Nigeria, sharing personal essays about a country that holds so much more than any one perspective could. Through the words of these writers, a living portrait of Nigeria is woven, one that is as beautiful as it is complex.
