Gingerbread is Helen Oyemi’s sixth novel teeming with fantasy, magical realism and folklore. The story centres on one night where, after finding her daughter Perdita half poisoned by gingerbread in a suspected suicide attempt, Harriet tells the story of her tough past and who Perdita’s father might be in an attempt to ‘talk life back into her’.
