SEX AND THE CITY with a killer edge for fans of Queen and My Sister The Serial Killer
SOON TO BE A MAJOR BBC TV SERIAL
'Funny, shocking, unputdownable. I loved it' PAULA HAWKINS
A darkly comic and bitingly subversive the on love, race and family. Wahala will have you laughing, crying, and gasping in sorrow. Bolding political about class, colourist and cooking, here is a truly inclusive tale that will speak to anyone who has ever cherished friendship, in all its forms.
Ronke, Simi, Boo are three mixed-race friends living in London. They have the gift of two cultures, Nigerian and English. Not all of them choose to see it that way. Everyday racism has never held them back, but now in their thirties, they question their future.
Ronke wants a husband (he must be Nigerian); Boo enjoys (correction: endures) stay-at-home motherhood; while Simi, full of fashion career dreams, rolls her eyes as her boss refers to her urban vibe yet again. When Isobel, a lethally glamorous friend from their past arrives in town, she is determined to fix their futures for them. Cracks in their friendship begin to appear, and it is soon obvious Isobel is not sorting but wrecking.
When she is driven to a terrible act, the women are forced to reckon with a crime in their past that may just have repeated itself. Explosive, hilarious and wildly entertaining, this razor-sharp tale of love, race and family will have you laughing, crying and gasping in horror. Fearlessly political about class, colourism and clothes, the spellbinding Wahala is for anyone who has ever cherished friendship, in all its forms.
