Spanning centuries, mythologies, and points of view, the short stories in Babalola’s debut collection offer romances full of brimming emotions, and thoughtful perspectives that de-Westernize familiar tropes. Mythology and fairytales from Greece, West Africa, and the Middle East are explored in both magical and realistic settings. A standout is “Siwa,” an ideal short romance story full of lush, swooping feelings and enough happily-for-now momentum that listeners will be dreaming of these warriors for many days. Ajjaz Awad, Nneka Okoye, Olukemi Babalola, and the author bring Babalola’s poetic prose to life, making for a delightful listen.
VERDICT A must have for library audiobook collections.
