A woman bears witness to the aftermath of a suicide pact. A couple's late-night walk takes a drastic turn. A Catholic university student discovers the existence of a nonconsensual sex tape just as it goes viral in her community. Two lovers embark on a secret, dangerous romance on the outskirts of town. Violent anarchy threatens the peace of an elite West African boarding school. The stories of Perfect Little Angels, set mainly in Nigeria, are intense and visceral. Every protagonist finds us on one of the most impactful days of their lives. Days that the brain's archives cannot expunge. They face love and loss, grief and addiction, betrayal and new beginnings. If you like gritty, unflinching stories about our shared humanity--all the ways we can uplift and destroy each other--this book is for you.
