'A moving story, skilfully told, about Eniola, a boy whose future has been snatched away from him, and Wuraola, a talented, overworked junior doctor, whose intertwined narratives combine to produce an insightful portrait of an unequal and deeply divided society moving towards a terrible crisis. A Spell of Good Things is both gripping and memorable' - PAT BARKER

'A powerful, staggering read' - Booker Prize 2023

'An outstanding read' - ANITA RANI

'Heart-rending . . . a breeze to read, despite the weightiness of its subject matter . . . Adebayo handles her characters with empathy and nuance, showing their vulnerabilities, yearnings, shame and delusions' - Financial Times

'Compelling . . . This immensely readable novel is a blistering indictment of the abuse of power (political and domestic) and the ubiquitous violence that can destroy lives overnight' - Observer

'[Ayobami Adebayo] writes about intimate, domestic Nigerian lives, in maybe the way that Anne Tyler does with America . . . within her stories is the whole entire world' - BBC Radio 4 Open Book

'Bright and distinctive . . . Adebayo delivers a searing indictment of the country's corruption and gender inequalities. This packs a powerful punch' -Publishers Weekly
