Ayobami Adebayo is one of the brightest lights coming out of African literature today. Her debut novel Stay With Me about a childless couple living in 1980s Nigeria has put her on the fast track to stardom. The book has been listed as a New York Times notable book, shortlisted for the Bailey’s Prize, as well as many more recognitions. The book Stay With Me has the following blurb;

Yejide and Akin have been married since they met and fell in love at university. Though many expected Akin to take several wives, he and Yejide have always agreed: polygamy is not for them. But four years into their marriage — after consulting fertility doctors and healers, trying strange teas and unlikely cures — Yejide is still not pregnant. She assumes she still has time until her family arrives on her doorstep with a young woman they introduce as Akin’s second wife.

The writer announced on her Facebook that the book is now available in France from January 9 from Editions Charleston an independent publishing house founded in 2013. This new edition is called Reste Avec Moi.
