Chika Unigwe

Listen to Chika Unigwe

Nigerian-born Chika Unigwe has been praised as ‘one of the most probing, thought-provoking writers of the recent renaissance in African fiction’. She tells stories of African women oppressed by poverty and their gender – in Europe and at home. Her prose is as alluring as her subjects are challenging; her characters empathetic and courageous.

Appearing at the Wheeler Centre, Unigwe is joined for a chat by fellow writer Paddy O'Reilly.
