Yinka, Where is Your Huzband? (Hardback) Lizzie Damilola Blackburn (author)
The hotly anticipated debut of 2022 with a heroine to fall in love with.
The Nigerian accent Dictionary
Huzband (pronounced auz-band) noun
1. A male partner in a marriage
E.g. Yinka's younger sister, Kemi, is married to Uche
2. A non-existent man in a non-existent marriage whose whereabouts is often questioned, usually by Nigerian mums and aunties to single British Nigerian women
E.g. So, Yinka. Tell me. Where is your huzband? Ah, ah. You're thirty-one now!
Yinka wants to find love. The problem is she also has a mum who thinks she's better qualified to find it for her.
She also has too many aunties who frequently pray for her delivery from singledom, a preference for chicken and chips over traditional Nigerian food, and a bum she's sure is far too small as a result. Oh, and the fact that she's a thirty-one-year-old South-Londoner who doesn't believe in sex before marriage is a bit of an obstacle too...
When her cousin gets engaged, Yinka commences Operation Find A Date for Rachel's Wedding. Will Yinka find herself a huzband? And what if the thing she really needs is to find herself?
