    Every Day is for the Thief Copy

    ,
    Teju Cole (Author) A young man returns to Nigeria after fifteen years in New York. The country of his childhood has changed: it has found fast-food restaurants, email cafes, contempt for authority and the all-consuming draw of 'money for nothing'. From the consulate back in Manhattan to the dusty streets of Lagos, life runs like clockwork -- as long as you can pay the fee: a bribe for the visa clerk; a 'Christmas gift' at immigration. Petrol pumps overcharge and internet cafes overflow with scammers. Every Day is for the Thief is a candid tale of political and spiritual corruption, and a moving account of what it means to go home.

    Fine Boys

    ,
    Eghosa Imasuen (Author)

    Warri, October 1992: Sick of watching his parents fight, 16-year-old Ewaen is waiting for university to begin, waiting for something to happen. Months later, Ewaen and friends are finally enrolled as freshmen at the University of Benin. Their routine now consists of hanging out in a parking lot trading jibes, chasing girls and sex, and learning to manage the staff strikes and crumbling infrastructure. But Nigerian campuses in the 1990s can be dangerous places, too. Violent confraternities stake territories and stalk for new recruits. An incident of petty crime snowballs into tragedy...

    Fine Boys is Eghosa Imasuen’s second novel. In the witty, colloquial style, fast becoming his trademark, Imasuen presents everyday Nigerian life against the backdrop of the pro-democracy riots of the '80s and '90s, the lost hopes of June 12 1993, and the terror of the Abacha years.

    'Imasuen’s book, locally published by Farafina (Kachifo), is the quintessential Nigerian novel. Bold, witty and shorn of pretences, it was, in my opinion, the best locally published novel in the last four years.' Stanley Azuakola

    For Broken Men Who Cross Often

    ,
    Efe Paul Azino (Author)

    Efe Paul Azino’s spoken word performances have received critical acclaim from listeners over the years. This book is therefore an expected result of a heightened expectation from many of his fans. For Broken Men Who Cross Often, is a refreshing and brilliant bond of the written and the oral, as it invents aesthetic devices to connect the two medium which have constantly generated wide debate: spoken word and poetry-on-the page. The author, in his writing, resonates through his themes of advocacy, love, loss, identity and history, the need for a revisit of the inner self. In Efe Paul Azino, we will always listen to tradition in present-day voice.

    Hour Game (King and Maxwell)

    , , ,
    David Baldacci (Author) David Baldacci's heart-stopping Hour Game is the second fast-paced thriller in the King and Maxwell series. Following their collaboration in Split Second, ex-Secret Service agents Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have gone into partnership and are investigating the robbery of some secret documents at the residence of the incredibly wealthy Battle family. It seems like a straightforward case of domestic burglary, but soon they begin to suspect links to larger, more terrifying events now shaking the prosperous town of Writghtsburg . . . The unidentified corpse of an attractive young woman turns up in the woods; two high school kids, one shot in the back, the other in the face, are found dead in their car; a successful lawyer is discovered stabbed to death in her own home. A serial killer is on the loose. The murderer kills in the manner of famous killers of the past but takes care to leave a stopped watch at the scene of each crime - corresponding to the victim's position on his hit list. As the killing spree escalates it seems that the fractured Battle family are somehow involved and Maxwell and King suddenly find themselves racing to solve an intricate puzzle, one that is full of tantalizing clues but barren of solid evidence, and one that is leaving even the FBI confounded. And all the while, the body count is rising . . . Hour Game is followed by Simple Genius, First Family, The Sixth Man and King and Maxwell.

    I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings

    Maya Angelou (Author) Maya Angelou's seven volumes of autobiography are a testament to the talents and resilience of this extraordinary writer. Loving the world, she also knows its cruelty. As a Black woman she has known discrimination and extreme poverty, but also hope, joy, achievement and celebration. In this first volume of her six books of autobiography, Maya Angelou beautifully evokes her childhood with her grandmother in the American south of the 1930s. She learns the power of the white folks at the other end of town and suffers the terrible trauma of rape by her mother's lover. 'I write about being a Black American woman, however, I am always talking about what it's like to be a human being. This is how we are, what makes us laugh, and this is how we fall and how we somehow, amazingly, stand up again' Maya Angelou

    Sade Adeniran (Author) It is 1977 when nine-year old Lola Ogunwole is wrenched from all that is familiar in London and thrust into an alien culture. Abandoned by her father and separated from her brother, Lola must adjust to living without the basic necessities, where a drink of water entails a six mile trek into the bushes. Unable to speak the language and spurned by her relatives, Lola struggles to find her identity in a place where she doesn't quite fit. Although sometimes bleak and harrowing, Imagine This is told with a feistiness and humour that provokes empathy towards Lola as she moves from childhood to adulthood, searching for love and acceptance and coming to terms with the hardest thing of all, loss.

It is the story of two people struggling to find themselves and each other - a story of passion and idealism, courage and betrayal, and the universal desire to fall, madly, deeply, in love.

    Kemi’s Journal

    , ,
    Abidemi Sanusi (Author) This is the spiritual journal of Kemi, a young professional high-flier who has been a Christian for a year. Kemi faces struggles in her career and within her mixed race family - but most notably with her feelings for her former non-believing boyfriend. In a moment of weakness she sleeps with Zack and then has to deal with the resulting unplanned pregnancy, considering something she never dreamed she might contemplate: abortion. She also considers abandoning her faith, feeling her actions have brought her under God's condemnation and beyond forgiveness. Though she estranges herself from church, she doesn't stop writing her journal and reflecting on her Bible verse for each day. Abidemi says of her novel, 'It is a call to people who've turned their back on their faith and also for Christians who are struggling with sin. It is a novel of encouragement, hope and redemption in Christ. I hope the novel will encourage people to live with their eyes focused on him in spite of their many struggles.' Target readership: Christians or those on the fringe of Christianity; anyone needing to hear a story about grace and forgiveness and the way back to God. Key selling points: Well-crafted and strong writing with touches of humour, producing a book you can't put down Christian fiction that's not soft and sentimental - but gritty, real and rich in meaning. Commendation: With its big themes (sex outside marriage, sanctity of life, friendship and forgiveness), sassy style and strong, likeable characters, Kemi's Journal will strike a chord with many women today. Whether you identify with Kemi, struggling to live out her faith as a single, Christian woman; Vanessa, who's always done the right thing and is beginning to wonder whether she is missing something or Kemi's parents, who watch helplessly as their daughter's life threatens to spiral out of control, this is a 'let's get real about life' story you won't want to put down.

    Like a Mule Bringing Ice Cream to the Sun

    Sarah Ladipo Manyika (Author) Morayo Da Silva, a cosmopolitan Nigerian woman, lives in hip San Francisco. On the cusp of seventy-five, she is in good health and makes the most of it, enjoying road trips in her vintage Porsche, chatting to strangers, and recollecting characters from her favourite novels. Then she has a fall and her independence crumbles. Without the support of family, she relies on friends and chance encounters. As Morayo recounts her story, moving seamlessly between past and present, we meet Dawud, a charming Palestinian shopkeeper, Sage, a feisty, homeless Grateful Dead devotee, and Antonio, the poet whom Morayo desired more than her ambassador husband. A subtle story about ageing, friendship and loss, this is also a nuanced study of the erotic yearnings of an older woman.
