Seven days to find a bride in the city for a mysterious millionaire from the country.
It sounds like a lucrative, straightforward case for Private Investigator Boy, an above-average sinner if a less than successful Private Eye.
But as Boy searches through the different sides of a dark city on behalf of his client, he discovers that his quest is as much about himself, and exorcising the demons in his past, as it is about finding the 'woman in a thousand'.
When the legendary Race Man intervenes, Boy's investigations propel all parties to a stunning climax.
Rich, poignant, and brimming with invention, Diran Adebayo's MY ONCE UPON A TIME is a remarkably perceptive insight into our times.
