For Baba Segi, his collection of wives and children are signs of virility. All runs smoothly in the polygamous home until wife number four arrives. Bolanle is a soft-spoken university graduate who is quickly ostracised by her illiterate co-wives. However, she is determined to give Baba Segi the children he expects. Her failure to conceive exposes a dark family secret. This revelation has devastating consequences for the entire household.

With sardonic humour, Lola Shoneyin unravels the rotten innards of this polygamous household in a cleverly-plotted story.
