What People are Saying About This

Author of Gun Love and President of PEN International - Jennifer Clement

“Chigozie Obioma is a gifted and original storyteller. His masterful new novel An Orchestra of Minorities is remarkable for its exploration of universal concepts to do with destiny, free will and luck.”

Author of Foreign Gods, Inc. - Okey Ndibe

“Chigozie Obioma is an audacious and ambitious writer, and quite adept at binding the reader to the irresistible spells he casts. An Orchestra of Minorities is a magisterial accomplishment by any measure, and particularly impressive for the way Obioma orchestrates a tableau in which humans and spirits must interact in a complex, emotionally rich-veined story. Few writers can match Obioma’s astonishing range, his deft facility for weaving a mesmeric and triumphant fictive canvas in which—reminiscent of the ancient masters—a cohort of gods presides over and negotiates the fates of humans.”

New York Times bestselling author of The Mothers - Brit Bennett

"An ambitious and immersive tale about love and sacrifice, told by an ancient spirit. A bold new novel from an exciting young writer."
