The Participant Observer International Book of the Month is Welcome to Lagos
by Chibundu Onuzo.

Twenty-six year old prodigy Chibundu Onuzo has published her second novel, to almost universal acclaim. With Nollywood-like storylines and clever turns in plot, the book paints an entertaining and funny picture of Lagos life and Nigerian politics. Five wildly disparate refugees from Nigeria's never-ending civil wars join up on the road to the big (read huge) city of Lagos, seeking freedom and fortune.

Once arrived, the hapless five set up camp in a deserted building, only to find that they are sharing space with their landlord, the corrupt Minister of Education, on the run with a suitcase full of money, $10 million to be exact. Next to appear is a crusading upper-crust journalist, a member of the cosmopolitan, well-traveled élite of Nigerian society. To continue would spoil the book. Suffice it to say that Onuzo's "ability to bring her characters to life, including the city of Lagos, perhaps the best-painted character of all, is impressive."—Helon Habila, The Guardian

Reviewed by The Economist ("…rich and poor, urban and rural, privileged and powerless, Muslim and Christian, Igbo and Yoruba - collide to spectacular effect…"), The Irish Examiner ("…a hugely accomplished and brilliantly drawn tragicomic farce about life in Nigeria…") and Amazon ("As moving as it is mesmerizing..."), Welcome to Lagos appears headed to the top of the charts.
