Description

These stories explore, and attempt to define the inexorable new world of emigration and globalisation, fragmented and uncertain, where the legacy of racism and colonialism confuses, prevails, or takes on new forms. The author and his protagonists are the children of the independence movement - the black privileged bourgeoisie, educated abroad and lecturers at universities of world renown; but also the crooks and anonymous odd-jobbers on the streets of the cities. They are cultural hybrids and unwanted aliens in ruthless pursuit of money; their children in pursuit of paper qualifications and fast cars, racing into modernity, without asking what it might mean. Then there is the question of the black complex: symbol of black freedom and solidarity, and the root of racism and inferiority. The author is a professor of French and Francophone Studies. His works include Exlie at Home, and Dead End, One Little Girl's Dream for which he won the Association of Nigerian Authors' Prize for Children's Literature.
