    Didi Kanu and the Singing Dwarfs of the North: Volume 1 (The Adventures of Didi Kanu)

    ,
    Jude Idada (Author) Didi Kanu is a charmingly curious eight-year-old girl who lives in a small village in Eastern Nigeria with her hopelessly poor family. She dreams of journeying to the parallel world of the Singing Magical Dwarfs of the North to uncover the mysteries of their existence. When her Uncle comes to take her away to the big city to live with him, her life takes an unexpected turn; a turn which is further complicated when her Uncle suffers a ghastly car accident and falls into a never-ending sleep. With the help of Ede, the mysterious village storyteller, Didi ventures into the realm of the hidden creation in a quest to learn the magical song that can awaken her Uncle. On this journey, Didi learns how to invoke the incredible forces behind her powerful imaginations and discovers the true meaning of unconditional love. Didi Kanu and the Singing Dwarfs of the North is a story of love, adventure, faith and belief. It is a family tale that would leave every reader enthralled.

    We Should All Be Feminists

    ,

    Chimamanda Ngozi Adichi (Author)

    In this personal, eloquently-argued essay—adapted from her much-admired TEDx talk of the same name—Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie, award-winning author of Americanah, offers readers a unique definition of feminism for the twenty-first century, one rooted in inclusion and awareness. Drawing extensively on her own experiences and her deep understanding of the often masked realities of sexual politics, here is one remarkable author’s exploration of what it means to be a woman now—and an of-the-moment rallying cry for why we should all be feminists.

    Taiye Selasi (Author)

    A “buoyant” and “rapturous” debut novel (The Wall Street Journal) about the transformative power of unconditional love

The news of his death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before. Moving with great elegance through time and place, Ghana Must Go charts their circuitous journey to one another and, along the way, teaches us that the truths we speak can heal the wounds we hide.

    Treasures: . . . classic in the modern day

    ,
    Babalola Ibisola (Author) Treasures is a work that attempts to convey its message in an unorthodox manner. Not allowing himself to be limited in any way, the writer has delved into each topic using every contemporary material around him and yet laying out his work in a classic fashion. The writer employed various styles of writing: meter and rhyme. He injected the local materials like neva and even dared to invent words, such as adolicity. Treasures is made more profound by the liberality that it enjoys from the writer. Treasures is rendered in many forms, and each has its uniqueness. Though occasionally secular, it has deeper root in spirituality. Mysteries, adventures, love, endurance, hope, and lots more characterize the work.

The stories are inherently Nigerian, capturing certain nuances of everyday "Naija" life, and presenting it, through Bobo's eyes for anyone, anywhere. The author's style can be described as easy reading, colloquial, comical and satirical.

    The 14th Tale

    ,
    Inua Ellams (Author) 1988: at four-years-old, he short-circuited his home with a silver spoon and a Betamax video player. 1989: stopped a 700-strong student assembly with a tantrum. 1995: was chased through jungle growth by a crazed, frustrated French teacher called Monsieur Batcock...Misfit? Apparently - until a little family research reveals a pattern of mischief reaching as far back as a great grandfather, and so the story begins: I'm from a long line of trouble makers, of ash skinned Africans, born with clenched fists and a natural thirst for battle only quenched by breast milk. They'd suckle as if the white silk sliding between gums were liquid peace treaties from mums. In 'The 14th Tale', Inua vividly describes the exploits of a natural-born mischief growing from clay streets in Nigeria to roof tops in Dublin - and, finally, to heartbreak in London.

    Things Fall Apart

    ,
    Chinua Achebe (Author) Things Fall Apart tells two intertwining stories, both centering on Okonkwo, a “strong man” of an Ibo village in Nigeria. The first, a powerful fable of the immemorial conflict between the individual and society, traces Okonkwo’s fall from grace with the tribal world. The second, as modern as the first is ancient, concerns the clash of cultures and the destruction of Okonkwo's world with the arrival of aggressive European missionaries. These perfectly harmonized twin dramas are informed by an awareness capable of encompassing at once the life of nature, human history, and the mysterious compulsions of the soul.

    The Final Testament of a Minor God

    Chuma Nwokolo (Author) The hundred poems in this anthology strike a balance between orthodoxy and rebellion, between mordern and heritage. The poetic voice is poised between the caustic and the comic, but the lines are always insightful.

    HONOURABLE

    ,
    Bobo Omotayo (Author) HONOURABLE is part-fictional, mostly-factional, and is certainly a play on a real-life political campaign. Bobo Omotayo's new work is a satirical take on the realities of the Nigerian political scene. It is one man's reflections on the idiosyncrasies of Nigeria's political space - a humorous take on some of the unique issues that continue to plague our development as a modern political environment.
