“These stories announce a strong, distinctive voice, powered in equal measure by love and rage. They offer perspectives on life in all its messy multiplicity, mythical and real. Molara Wood writes with admirable sensitivity; her characters are a healthy mixture of the self-aware, the compassionate, the innocent, and the worldly-wise; and the variety itself is proof of a mastery of complex emotions. I read these stories with a genuine sense of gratitude.”

– AKIN ADESOKAN, Author of Roots in the Sky.
“In this stunning collection, colourful characters speak triumphantly of the enigma and beauty that is Africa. Indigo is a lovely metaphor for the collage of stories lovingly spun together. The tapestry is beautiful, warm, and comforting. These are stories rendered in a griot?s voice, just as the storytellers of old would have told them.”

– IKHIDE IKHELOA, Writer and Critic.
“In Indigo is sedulous craft and daring that sets Molara Wood apart in the genre of short stories. Indigo is a first collection that never reads like one. It is, at once, all-efflorescence and all-flourish.”

– TADE IPADEOLA, author of The Sahara Testaments.
