God’s Children are Little Broken Things – Arinze Ifeakandu

£14.99

Yn ymddangosiad cyntaf gan un o ysgrifenwyr ifanc mwyaf addawol Nigeria, mae polion cariad yn cwrdd â chymdeithas mewn fflwcs.

Mae cenedlaethau’n gwrthdaro, teuluoedd yn torri ac yn cael eu hail-wneud, ieithoedd a diwylliannau’n cydblethu, a chariadon yn canfod eu ffyrdd i’r dyfodol; o blentyndod i oedolaeth; ar gampysau prifysgolion, canol dinasoedd, a chymdogaethau lle mae clychau eglwys yn cymysgu â galwad y bore i weddi.

Mae’r naw stori cwiar hyn am agosatrwydd gwrywaidd yn frith o gyfrinachau, ecstasi, unigrwydd a chariad yn eu darluniau o’r hyn y mae’n ei olygu i fod yn hoyw yn Nigeria gyfoes.


In this stunning debut from one of Nigeria’s most promising young writers, the stakes of love meet a society in flux.

A man revisits the university campus where he lost his first love, aware now of what he couldn’t understand then…
A daughter returns home to Lagos after the death of her father, where she must face her past – and future – relationship with his longtime partner…
A young musician rises to fame at the risk of losing himself and the man who loves him.

Generations collide, families break and are remade, languages and cultures intertwine, and lovers find their ways to futures; from childhood through adulthood; on university campuses, city centres, and neighbourhoods where church bells mingle with the morning call to prayer.

These nine stories of queer male intimacy brim with simmering secrecy, ecstasy, loneliness and love in their depictions of what it means to be gay in contemporary Nigeria. A debut of emotional charge, marking a compassionate, important new voice in fiction.
