Helen Oyeyemi Biography

Helen Oyeyemi is the author of seven novels including "Peaces," "Gingerbread," "The Icarus Girl," "The Opposite House," which was a nominee for the 2008 Hurston/Wright Legacy Award, and "White Is for Witching," which won a 2010 Somerset Maugham Award.

Born in Nigeria in 1984, Oyeyemi moved with her family at the age of four to Lewisham in South London. An imaginative and introspective child, Oyeyemi struggled with clinical depression throughout her school years, finding comfort in reading, writing and rewriting her favorite stories. At 18, Oyeyemi began work on her first novel, "The Icarus Girl," which was published while Oyeyemi was a social and political sciences student at Corpus Christi College, Cambridge. Since leaving Cambridge, Oyeyemi has lived a peripatetic life in Paris, Toronto, London, Berlin, Budapest, and Prague, among other global cities.

Oyeyemi published a story collection "What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours," in 2016 and is also the author of several short fiction stories.
