About The Book
Follow the daily lives, loves, and hopes of an entire community in Jola Naibi’s moving debut, Terra Cotta Beauty
A carefully crafted selection of short stories, this collection examines
life in Lagos, Nigeria, during the era of military rule. It reveals the
struggles, loves, and hopes of a disparate group of people whose lives
always manage to intersect—sometimes in the most devastating of ways.
With each brief conversation and split-second decision containing
consequences that reach further than anyone could ever imagine, each of
the book’s seven tales is a delicate thread that helps form the social
fabric of a nation divided.
From a woman whose journalist husband is jailed for criticizing the
government to a young man’s reluctant descent into crime, Terra Cotta Beauty
acts as a carefully crafted ode to the essence of Lagos itself: its people.
