For lurking beneath the storm is a curse that snakes its way from pre-independence Lagos to Rome, then on to Los Angeles and London, before finally shooting its venom into a near-demented Kolade in Birmingham. We feel for Kolade and are moved to tears – though not, surprisingly, of sadness. For the book’s uncommon humour rescues laughter from sorrow’s teeth.
