WINNER OF THE NLNG NIGERIA PRIZE FOR LITERATURE An affair between 55-year-old widow Binta Zubairu and 25-year-old weed dealer Reza was bound to provoke condemnation in conservative Northern Nigeria. Brought together in unusual circumstances, Binta and Reza faced a need they could only satisfy in each other. Binta – previously reconciled with God – now yearns for intimacy after the sexual repression of her marriage, the pain of losing her first son and the privations of widowhood. Meanwhile, Reza’s heart lies empty and waiting to be filled due to the absence of a mother. The situation comes to a head when Binta’s wealthy son confronts Reza, with disastrous consequences. This story of love and longing - set against undercurrents of political violence - unfurls gently, revealing layers of emotion that defy age, class and religion.   GLOSSARY OF HAUSA/ARABIC WORDS AND PHRASES Author: Abubakar Adam Ibrahim | Print ISBN: 978-1911115007 | E-Book ISBN: 978-1911115014 | Format: Flapped paperback | No. of Pages: 320| Pub.

This research in France is going to change the Covid-19 narrative. It might not have started from China, or might have left China earlier than thought. When this is over, we might realise we knew nothing from the beginning.

Last day of Ramadan, at last. Like an EPL game, last minute drama and Fergie Time. Patience wins in the end.

A year ago, Binyavanga Wainaina passed away. Here is my tribute to him.
