How To Spell Naija In 100 Short Stories vol 1.
How to Spell Naija in 100 Short Stories (Gwandustan, 2013; 289)
is a compendium of vistas of everyday occurrences in Nigeria, Africa,
and the world at large, delivered through different writing styles. The
stories are taken from life through keen observations and acute
deductions and served to the reader in a way that will make them seem
obvious upon reading, creating that retrospective and reflective
epiphany or the aha! moment. Sometimes the stories capture the reader's
situation so perfectly that he wonders how the author got it so right.
They are so true to life and to our daily experiences that some of them
do not even qualify to be described as stories anymore. They have moved
beyond the realms of fiction, of fact-based fiction, of historical
fiction, into something else. They are more of essays or treatises on
societal issues than fiction. They could be easily quoted and referenced
in any work of scholarship...
