WINNER OF THE 9MOBILE PRIZE FOR LITERATURESHORTLISTED FOR THE 2017 BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTIONSHORTLISTED FOR THE 2018 WELLCOME BOOK PRIZELONGLISTED FOR THE 2018 INTERNATIONAL DYLAN THOMAS PRIZEYejide 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.

But when her relatives insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear. Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 1980s Nigeria, Stay With Me is a story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the power of grief, and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood.

It is a tale about the desperate attempts we make to save ourselves, and those we love, from heartbreak.
