Fave Five: Audiobooks with Queer Nigerian Protagonists

This post is sponsored by OrangeSky Audio in honor of the publication of God’s Children Are Little Broken Things by Arinze Ifeakandu, narrated by Mirron Willis! The audiobook edition includes an exclusive introduction voiced by the author.

God's Children Are Little Broken Things: Stories

These nine stories of queer male intimacy brim with simmering secrecy, ecstasy, loneliness, and love in their depictions of what it means to be gay in contemporary Nigeria. Generations collide, families break and are remade, languages and cultures intertwine, and lovers find their ways to futures. From childhood through adulthood, on university campuses, city centers, and neighborhoods where church bells mingle with the morning call to prayer, love is consistent even in the presence of loss.
