Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀ talks to John Mitchinson

A Spell of Good Things

 – Meadow Stage

Nigerian writer Ayọ̀bámi Adébáyọ̀’s debut novel Stay With Me was shortlisted for the Baileys Prize for Women’s Fiction and the Wellcome Book Prize. Discussing her latest novel A Spell of Good Things – longlisted for the 2023 Booker Prize – Adébáyọ̀ shines her light on the gaping divide between the haves and the have-nots in Nigeria, and the shared humanity that lies in between. Eniola spends his days running errands for the local tailor, collecting newspapers and begging, dreaming of a big future. Wuraola is a golden girl, the perfect child of a wealthy family. When sudden violence shatters a family party, Wuraola and Eniola’s lives collide.
