About the Author
Abi Ishola-Ayodeji is an award winning journalist who has written for several publications including ELLE.com, Essence, The Huffington Post, and Ebony. In 2017 she was named among Essence Magazine's Woke 100 Women for launching Beyond Classically Beautiful, a photo series that celebrates the diverse beauty of Black women. For Channel 75 in New York, she's produced several documentaries, including one on the opening of the Smithsonian National Museum of African American History and Culture and a four part series titled "Enter West Africa" for which she covered different issues plaguing Nigeria and Ghana.
Ishola-Ayodeji is deft, shrewd, sometimes witty, and always observant about the social, economic, and political obstacles to Nigerians wishing only to live honorably and decently. A poignant, revealing, and rueful tale of how much the political can affect the personal. -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
Expertly telling the story of an unloved girl on a hunt for answers and her own path, Patience Is a Subtle Thief is both heartbreaking and heartfelt. -- Rachel Strolle, BuzzFeed
