"Teeth of a Snail" is an age-old story, that of a man who has lost his friend, subtly echoing that of Gilgamesh and Enkidu. It encompasses the tragic and the beautiful along with the love for our fellow man. Amakeze's prose strikes an intimate chord as it brings up questions about who we are and what purpose we serve in life. It makes us wonder how our lives would be if we knew the answers beforehand - if only the gods spoke.

About the Author

Ositadimma Amakeze has read. He is still reading as he strives to attest the difference between certification and qualifications through art. As an artist and poet, he talks about the Muse more often than not; as evident in his poetry book, "The Blazes & Buzzes of the Muse."
The demiurgic force as it were, fashions the sensible world of his words through the walls of eternal ideas. As such, the ethereal eloquence and ingenious exploitation of events found in his novel "The Last Carver," and other works of his, testify to a sublime possession of thought wrought in a conscious silence and solitude of being!
The contention above stated, such as seen in the two protagonists in "The Teeth of a Snail" is a flawed phenomenology, "..., since things have refused to happen, I have to happen. And if people begin to wonder, then I will begin to wander".
He believes 'we happen' but there's an ethics that guides such manifestation. Thus, it is wrong to assume there's no wrong in doing things wrongly. The two delinquents did...., "One would think that Nkuri and Udene did not know they should not have trod this lonely path at such a sacred hour? No! They knew. Even as children, they had been informally instructed by folk tales that they were never to go to Amama River, especially at this time of mgbachi when spirits and wilderness beings rambled about." And they were done!
Indeed, everything perceived is possible, but not everything conceived is permissible.
The author is the founder of YOWAMCA (Young Women & Men Creative Association) whose motto is, "Creativity Without Borders!"and a vibrant book club, O'star Book Club that believes in, "Teach a child to read good books and write right, and save the world tons of troubles."
Ositadimma is a member of Teachers Registration Council of Nigeria (TRCN), Association of Nigerian Authors (ANA), and Member, Nigerian Red Cross Society.
Above all, he is a Catholic priest of Awka Diocese; and native of Nimo, a people with unique names in Anambra State-Nigeria.
