New Nigeria County by Clare Brown was a fun theatre-style production of an audiobook. Honestly, as soon as anyone says “full cast” I’m in, because I know it will keep my attention! When I found out that TikToker Clare Brown wrote this book, I was definitely all-in. I was curious as to how she turned her satirical TikTok series that I watched during the pandemic into an audiobook. 

If you like satire, then check this audiobook out. I 100% recommend it. The character actors are hilarious. New Nigeria County is an alternate world where white people (European- Americans) are the cultural minority and men serve in the role of what you think of when you think of a traditional wife. Basically, Black women have the role and status of white men in this story. They are the CEOs and they support charities like those for unwed fathers. 

The conflict begins when Carèn calls the cops on the son of her new white neighbor in the gated community of their New Nigeria in Malcolm X estates. She claims the young man walking in his front yard is part of the khaki-wearing “Live Laugh Love gang.” This sets off a chain of cringeworthy confrontations as both women seek their own perspective of justice. The story combines comedy with the exposure of uncomfortable racial truths that exist in real America. 

At 3 hours and 33 minutes, New Nigeria County by Clare Brown a quick and engaging audiobook. You will feel like you are listening to a TV show or an old-school radio show. There is no physical book companion at this time. I am curious as to whether it will get turned into a TV show…
