“Lively and engaging . . . On Black Sisters’ Street is a pleasure to read: fast-paced, lucidly structured and colourful”Times Literary Supplement

“An important and accomplished novel that leaves a strong aftertaste. Unigwe gives voice to those who are voiceless, fleshes out the stories of those who offer themselves as meat for sale, and bestows dignity on those who are stripped of it”Independent

“This powerful book will leave you haunted”Ali Smith

Four very different women have made their way from Africa to the red light district of Brussels. They have come to claim for themselves the riches they believe Europe promised but when Sisi, the most enigmatic of the women, is murdered, their already fragile world is shattered.

Drawn together by the tragedy, the remaining three women – Joyce, a great beauty whose life has been devastated by war; Anne, whose dark moods hide a past injustice; and Efe, whose determination to earn her keep is motivated by a particular zeal – slowly begin to share their stories. They are stories of fear, displacement, love and most of all, they are stories of a sinister man called Dele.

“Vividly real and humane, a window on a fascinating and unfamiliar world where women laugh and fight and struggle to survive”Maggie Gee
