French journalist Sophie Bouillon documents living in Lagos in 2020 during the COVID-19 lockdown. In this thoughtful narrative non-fiction, Bouillon explores everyday life in Lagos through experiences from her career and personal life.
In one unforgettable year, the city was rocked by explosions, evictions and protests. A city that never sleeps put to bed by the pandemic. But Manuwa Street isn’t just a disinterested documentation of a foreigner’s impression of Lagos; it is about love, uncertainty, hope and survival.
