◎亞馬遜非洲文學新書排行冠軍

「炙熱、扣人心弦且極度迷人。」
── 加拿大重量級小說家Margaret Atwood

「完全是作者個人的當代風格…聰明且風趣,儘管主題是那麼地濃烈哀傷,她展現出女性靈魂的明亮與仁慈,同時也顯現了無邊的男性優越所造成的傷害。」
── 《衛報》(The Guardian)

1980年代,社會與政治皆動盪不安的奈及利亞,恰恰反映了Yejide的婚姻狀態。

Yejide與Akin在大學相戀進而步入婚姻,兩人說定了,一夫多妻制絕對不允許進入他們的家庭。但是,四年的婚姻下來,Yejide的肚皮毫無動靜。她,渴望一個奇蹟,也是丈夫與婆婆都想要的奇蹟:一個孩子。Yejide嘗試了所有的方法,不管是求醫還是艱困的朝聖之旅,甚至與乩童共舞、祈求上帝,結果都無所得。當親友們帶著一個女人來到家門口,並且告訴Yejide這是丈夫的第二個妻子時,她再也無法忍受了!忌妒、背叛與絕望接踵而來。Yejide知道,拯救他倆婚姻的唯一辦法就是懷孕。最後,她成功了,卻付出了她怎麼也不敢想像的代價!

作者Ayobami Adebayo透過這本小說,展現了婚姻的脆弱、家庭的離析、極度的痛苦與母性的枷鎖,是一本極度渴望拯救自己與所愛之人免於心碎的故事。

LONGLISTED FOR THE 2017 BAILEYS WOMEN'S PRIZE FOR FICTION 'There are things even love can't do ...If the burden is too much and stays too long, even love bends, cracks, comes close to breaking and sometimes does break. But even when it's in a thousand pieces around your feet, that doesn't mean it's no longer love ...' Yejide is hoping for a miracle, for a child. It is all her husband wants, all her mother-in-law wants, and she has tried everything - arduous pilgrimages, medical consultations, dances with prophets, appeals to God.

But when her in-laws insist upon a new wife, it is too much for Yejide to bear. It will lead to jealousy, betrayal and despair. Unravelling against the social and political turbulence of 80s Nigeria, Stay With Me sings with the voices, colours, joys and fears of its surroundings. Ayobami Adebayo weaves a devastating story of the fragility of married love, the undoing of family, the wretchedness of grief, and the all-consuming bonds of motherhood. It is a tale about our desperate attempts to save ourselves and those we love from heartbreak.
