 More about the book!

Jonathan Ball Publishers and The Book Lounge invite you to the launch of The God Child by Nana Oforiatta Ayim.

Ayim will be in conversation with Mohale Mashigo, author of the widely acclaimed and bestselling novel The Yearning.

The God Child is a coming-of-age story about a young girl finding her freedom in the midst of familial, cultural and political constraints.

‘Meditative, gestural, philosophic: a brave reinvention of the immigrant narrative, unapologetically inward-facing, seductively lyric … Unprecedented.’ – Taiye Selasi

‘I read this novel very slowly. I didn’t want to miss anything … It is a rich, beautiful book and when I got to the end, I wanted to start again.’ – Chibundu Onuzo
