In these nine blistering stories cavort jealous husbands, kissing cousins, teenage internet hustlers, democratic bus rides, home exorcisms and bowls of dubious catfish peppersoup: this is a searing, savage portrait of an utterly modern Nigeria. Dark yet disarming, in prose that is tough, vigorous and immediately distinctive, Love is Power, Or Something Like That is a phenomenal short story collection from a palpably talented new writer.
