Canada Performs: 'Speechless' by Anne Simpson

cover of speechless book

A’isha Nasir is a Nigerian teenager who has been charged with adultery. Sophie MacNeil is an ambitious, though inexperienced, Canadian journalist living in Nigeria. "Speechless" is the story of how their lives become intertwined in a fast-paced tale of justice, witness, and courage. From the cover: "Who should tell a story? What happens when one speaks on behalf of another? At once compelling and lyrical, Speechless presents a nuanced cast of characters trying to navigate the power of their words, their responsibility for them, and how they affect others in matters of life and death"
