Writeidea Festival: Irenosen Okojie


Boldness in Fiction

Award-winning author Irenosen Okojie talks to Joy Francis about her inventive, boundary-pushing short story collection, Speak Gigantular, her collection of dark modern fables which shocks, unsettles and disturbs. Okojie won a Betty Trask Award for her debut novel, Butterfly Fish and Speak Gigantular was shortlisted for the Jhalak Prize, the Saboteur Awards and has been longlisted for the Edgehill Short Story Prize and nominated for a Shirley Jackson Award.
