A Brief Review of Ayobami Adebayo’s Stay with Me

When I think of Stay with Me, and this might be cliché, I think of that Toni Morrison quote: write the book that you would love to read. Stay with Me is the caliber of book I would love to read—and to write. Not necessarily the same plot or the same themes or the same style, but rather the way Ayobami mashes all these elements together to produce a fine story that keeps you riveted to the page from beginning to end.
