Across The Gulf

The plot for Across the Gulf is engaging with suspense, surprises and coincidences. Ofala is engaged to Ifunanya and he gets to leave for the war on the eve of their wedding. Somehow, she falls into trouble and is saved by Janbut (an ‘enemy’ soldier), who looks like Ofala. Is there more to these seeming coincidences and resemblances ‘across the gulf’ in the novel?

Shadows And Ashes

Dul Johnsons Shadows and Ashes is a collection of eight (not so) short stories that are woven around three broad subjects; the Civil war, Rape, and a General Philosophy on life. What strikes one though, is the strong and vivid description in the collection that is evident of the authors romance with the still and moving came

Deeper Into The Night

is a tale of the Tarok people, a tale of trials, society, local colonialism, migrations, corruption, and most importantly, power. What this book is all about is fully captured in the blurb: ‘Mamzhi, [one of the main characters in the book] saves Gwangtim, his community, in a time of grave crisis to great admiration. Slowly, admiration turns into hero-worship by the villages who are blind to the growing evils that Mamzhi picks with increasingly acquired power.

Melancholia

A play that satirizes the political scenario in many contemporary African countries. It is the tale of Mumude (a pun on the word mumu), a Presidential aspirant of “one of the greatest countries of Africa (obviously Nigeria) and his many associates. Through the campaigns and the aftermath of the election, the play moves, with quick action, spirited wit and a deft use of language to reveal much that would leave any audience smiling; many readers intrigued, and capture the minds of those to whom it is intended – everyone.
