My Sister, the Serial Killer - Oyinkan Braithwaite

Staff Pick

A lot of punch is packed into this slender debut novel, one of my favorites of the year. Set in Lagos, it is the story of two sisters, opposites in every way, whose experiences of beauty, love, family, and social responsibility collide ferociously but ultimately keep them bonded together amid questions about their individual ethics and honesty. Brathwaite relies on spare, vivid prose and a deft use of satire to make this novel a gem of comic noir. And yes, it is about a series of boyfriends who meet their deaths at the hands of one of the sisters. I’m not going to say more!
