Three mixed-race friends navigate frustrated hopes and thwarted love in modern London, as a single terrible act threatens to spin their lives out of control in this darkly funny and scalpel sharp debut. Fearlessly political about class, colourism and clothes, the spellbinding Wahala is for anyone who has ever cherished friendship, in all its forms.
Wahala was one of 2022’s buzziest hardback publications and will be adapted into a major BBC TV series. Readers have been raving about the hardback and saying:
‘Funny, tragic, piercing portrait of modern women and friendship written in glittering and discerning prose’ EMMA STONEX, author of THE LAMPLIGHTERS
‘Terrific. Nikki May writes so well about friendship, food, fashion and the many ways modern women can stumble in their careers and personal lives‘CLARE CHAMBERS
‘This has bestseller written all over it. Fast-paced, funny, shocking, unputdownable. I loved it’ PAULA HAWKINS author of GIRL ON THE TRAIN and A SLOW FIRE BURNING
Congratulations, Nikki! We can’t wait for more readers to fall in love with Wahala.
