Helen Oyeyemi

‘These short stories are pure, sensuous enjoyment, packed with colour and passion’ The Times

One of the most striking voices in contemporary literature, Helen Oyeyemi talks about her most recent short story collection, What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours. It is a book of baroque beauty and quicksilver imagination; characters slip from their own story and resurface in another, on a journey that takes us to lost libraries and locked gardens; to marshlands where the drowned dead live; and to a city where the clocks have stopped.

Find out more about Helen Oyeyemi. Here she answers our quick-fire questions.
