IN DEPENDENCE BY SARAH LADIPO

3000

“A graceful and astonishing achievement.” – Henry Louis Gates Jr. “In Dependence, is a riveting love story across the challenges of race, geography and scars of colonial history.” – Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o “A beautiful and ambitious novel” – Bernardine Evaristo, author of Mr Loverman In the early sixties, Tayo Ajayi sails to England from Nigeria to take up a scholarship at Oxford University. There he discovers a whole generation high on visions of a new and better world. He meets Vanessa Richardson, the beautiful daughter of a former colonial officer. Their story, which spans four decades, is a bittersweet tale of a brave but doomed affair and the universal desire to fall truly, madly and deeply in love. A lyrical and moving story of unfulfilled love fraught with the weight of history, race and geography and intertwined with questions of belonging, aging, faith and family secrets. In Dependence explores the complexities of contemporary Africa, its Diaspora and its interdependence with the rest of the world.
