Book Excerpt: Sarah House by Ifeanyi Ajaegbo
Ifeanyi Ajaegbo’s harrowing debut novel, Sarah House, was published by Picador Africa this month. Women24 has released an exclusive extract from the book, in which we are introduced to some of the chilling real life issues that Ajaegbo addresses in his fiction:
‘You want me to be nice to you, don’t you?’
‘I don’t want anything,’ I stammered and made no effort to steady my voice. Something terrible was about to happen to me.
I felt it in the way he looked at me and the way he touched my skin. I saw it in his lopsided double smile, and the wall that refused to melt and swallow me so he would never have me within his reach.
