Masobe Books: List of Authors and Forthcoming Books

We are pleased to formally announce that 6 brilliant writers have joined the Masobe Books family.

These 6 writers share Masobe Books’ ethos of creating and publishing an exciting and eclectic body of work (including literary fiction, genre fiction, urban noir, speculative fiction, and short fiction). The writers and their books (which will be published between now and Q4 2020) are:

    1. Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani, the award-winning novelist and arguably one of Nigeria’s finest writers, has partnered with Masobe Books for the Nigeria rights to her 2 novels, ‘I Do Not Come To You By Chance’ and ‘Buried beneath the Baobab Tree’. She is also a journalist and essayist (with essays in The New Yorker, The New York Times, The Guardian and more).
    2. Chimeka Garricks, one of Nigeria’s best-kept writing secrets, returns after a 10-year gap from his first novel. This time, he mixes lots of music with his distinctive storytelling magic in a memorable collection of short stories, ‘A Broken People’s Playlist’.
    3. Michael Afenfia, the author of 3 critically-acclaimed novels, has adapted his popular series, ‘The Mechanics of Yenagoa’ into a full-length novel (of the same name, retaining the promise of the same wild and suspenseful ride).
    4. TJ Benson — remember the name — is the present-future of writing. His stories have appeared in Catapult, Transition, and more. ‘The Madhouse’, his richly-written and dreamscape-y first novel, will be published in Nigeria by Masobe Books in 2020.
    5. Angel Patricks Amegbe, poet and psychologist, debuts with ‘The Days of Silence’ a deceptively gentle coming-of-age novel about the resilience of a family of women.
    6. Othuke Ominiabohs, playwright and novelist, will take readers on an intense and spiritual journey in ‘Aviara’, a novel about the travails of Anthony Mukoro, the flawed hero from his first and well-traveled novel, ‘Odufa’.

Specific release dates (and publicity schedules) for each book will be announced in due course.
