Ifi and Job, a Nigerian couple in an arranged marriage, begin their lives together in Nebraska with a single, outrageous lie: that Job is a doctor, not a college dropout. Unwittingly, Ifi becomes his co-conspirator--that is until his first wife, Cheryl, whom he married for a green card years ago, reenters the picture and upsets Job's tenuous balancing act.

Published locally by Coffee House Press and written by a University of Nebraska graduate, Iromuanya's debut novel is timely and intensely engaging. We follow the lives of Job and Ifi caught in the competing dreams of their Nigerian families and their own 'only in America’ ambitions. Secrets and lies make page-turning reading.
