Reviews

'One of the most triumphant and joy-inducing books of the year... a hopeful narrative, crammed with incident and telling details, and it's a story that deserves to be savoured again and again.'

DIRIYE OSMAN The Huffington Post

"Frankie Edozien's The Lives of Great Men is an incredibly powerful portrayal of what it means to be a gay Nigerian man. But what makes this book so outstanding is its tender and insightful exploration of all the complicated, unspoken bonds in our most intimate relationships. In prose that is at once engaging and inquisitive, Edozien holds the human heart to light and finds the ways it manages to survive despite it all."

Maaza Mengiste, author of Beneath the Lion's Gaze

"Frankie Edozien writes with an urgency that is compelling, with a vulnerable honesty that is disarming and impressive, and with elegance about his life and a subject so risky and yet necessary. This is not a memoir of coming out gay in Nigeria as much as it is a call to step into our humanity. A necessary and courageous book."

Chris Abani, author of GraceLand and The Secret History of Las Vegas
