INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER "Love stories by and about marginalized women . . . The heroines are strong and sure . . . Babalola’s writing shines.” — New York Times Book Review "Absolutely intoxicating." — Casey McQuiston, New York Times bestselling author of Red, White, and Royal Blue and One Last Stop A vibrant debut collection of love stories from the bestselling author of Honey and Spice, retelling myths, folktales, and histories from around the world. A high-born Nigerian goddess, who has been beaten down and unappreciated by her gregarious lover, longs to be truly seen. A young businesswoman attempts a great leap in her company, and an even greater one in her love life. A powerful Ghanaian spokeswoman is forced to decide whether she should uphold her family’s politics or be true to her heart. In her debut collection, internationally acclaimed writer Bolu Babalola retells the most beautiful love stories from history and mythology with incredible new detail and vivacity. Focusing on the magical folktales of West Africa, Babalola also reimagines Greek myths, ancient legends from the Middle East, and stories from long-erased places. With an eye towards decolonizing tropes inherent in our favorite tales of love, Babalola has created captivating stories that traverse across perspectives, continents, and genres. Love in Color is a celebration of romance in all its many splendid forms. “I am in love with every single word Bolu Babalola has written. So rarely is love expressed this richly, this vividly, or this artfully.” —Candice Carty-Williams, international bestselling author of Queenie

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Beautifully written and full of joy. Bolu Babalola is a star.” Meg Cabot, #1 New York Times bestselling author
“Recasts traditional folk tales and myths. The golden thread woven throughout is the power—the necessity—of being seen: Here, the monster is less likely to be a dragon than a withholding partner.” New York Times Book Review
“The narrators enliven these reimaginings of classical literary tales…The ringing tones of the narrators as they energetically present dialogue between characters in perpetual conflict are sure to entertain. Listeners will delight in these performances, which in their dramatic range are reminiscent of the best radio theater.” AudioFile
