Short Description: ‘There are things even love can’t do . . . If the burden is too much and stays too long, even love bends, cracks, comes close to breaking and sometimes does break. But even when it’s in a thousand pieces around your feet, that doesn’t mean it’s no longer love . . .’

Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child. It is all her husband wants, all her mother in-law wants, and she has tried everything – arduous pilgrimages, medical consultations, dances with prophets, appeals to God. But when her in-laws insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear.

Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 80s Nigeria, Stay with Me sings with the voices, colours, joys and fears of its surroundings.

Ayobami Adebayo weaves a devastating story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the wretchedness of grief and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood. This unforgettable novel set in Nigeria gives voice to both husband and wife as they tell the story of their marriage—and the forces that threaten to tear it apart. It is a tale about our desperate attempts to save ourselves and those we love from heartbreak.

Title: Themis

Author: Isaac Attah Ogezi

Genre: Drama

Format: eBook (Kindle Edition)

Book Dimension (Paperback): NA

File Size (eBook): 934 KB

Number of Pages (eBook): 90

Publication Year: February 1, 2017

Short Description: Themis, the Greek goddess of justice, also popularly known as the blind Lady Justice, hails from the first generation of the line of the Titans in ancient Greek mythology. The myth woven around her in this play is aimed at bringing to the fore the universal theme of justice and its concomitant principle of equality of all before the naked eyes of the law which are the mainstay of the time-hallowed doctrine of the Rule of Law.
Themis is the mythopoeic story of the goddess’ passion for justice and equity far above primordial sentiments. It foregrounds the sacred place of justice above the wild call of consanguinity and romantic love. Told in a lyrical language that transports the reader or audience to the fabled Mount Olympus, the revered abode of the gods, the play demystifies the gods in the pantheon by conferring on them with some basic human attributes.
