Overview

Someone once said that the one trait all writers have in common is that they watch for the extraordinary magic that lies in the everyday.

This assertion comes alive in this maiden Naija Stories Anthology with the rich collection of short stories that touch on every aspect of our lives, from the topical issues of resource control agitation as seen in Visiting Admiral John Bull, to more lighthearted issues of wooing a lady as seen in One Sunday Morning in Atlanta, and everything in between.

Editorial Reviews

Nze Sylva Ifedigbo
These are stories about us or about our neighbours or something we’ve encountered in the news. They are what our friends tell us, their pain and joy, their passion and rage, their yearning and their cry against injustice. I enjoyed lots of the stories not just because of their simplicity and brevity but also for freshness they bring to storytelling and public discourse.
