In the early sixties, Tayo Ajayi sails to England from Nigeria to take up a scholarship
at Oxford University. There he discovers a whole generation high on visions of a new
and better world. He meets Vanessa Richardson, the beautiful daughter of a former
colonial officer. Their story, which spans four decades, is a bittersweet tale of a brave
but doomed affair and the universal desire to fall truly, madly and deeply in love.
This is a lyrical and moving story of unfulfilled love fraught with the weight of
history, race and geography and intertwined with questions of belonging, ageing, faith
and family secrets. In Dependence explores the complexities of contemporary Africa, its
diaspora and its interdependence with the rest of the world.
