This House is Not For Sale is a story about a house in Lagos: The Family House, owned and ruled over by the patriarchal, business-minded Grandpa - by turns benevolent and cruel - and home to his wives, children, grandchildren and the many in his service. It tells the stories of the people who once lived there, of the curse placed on the house by one of its former occupants, of the evil and brutality that transpired in the house, and finally of its downfall. From the casual use of violence, to the everyday reliance on magic, to the gossiping voices of neighbours passing judgement, here is a tenderly drawn, compassionate and utterly engrossing story of a Nigerian community, its culture, and the power of storytelling.
