Better Never Than Late

by Chika Unigwe






Book Description

Better Never Than Late charts the unconventional lives and love affairs of a group of Nigerian migrants, making their way in Belgium. The collection is centred around Prosperous and her husband Agu, and the various visitors who gather at their apartment each week. These interconnected stories explore their struggles and triumphs, from unhappy marriages (of convenience or otherwise), to the pain of homesickness, and the tragic paradox in longing to leave Nigeria so that you may one day return to it.

Just watched that nonsense again. He doesn’t look scared or guilty or remorseful. He looks bored. Impatient for the circus to end so he can get off the carousel and go back to his life #shite #shiteshow #uduakakpan

What's next? Is he going to 'escape' from custody? #uduakapan.

if it sounds like shite, looks like shite, it is most definitely shite #UduakAkpan. From the t-shirt to the smug look on his face, he was giving everyone the middle finger, emboldened by whoever it is that has his back. And those journalists? Gosh! #Shiteshow
