A Tiny Place Called Happiness
A Tiny Place Called Happiness is a book of short stories with twenty-two stories. Nwilo, who is also the author of Diary Of A Stupid Boyfriend, is one of the most innovative and refreshingly experimental voices in Nigerian literature. He is funny, has a huge social media followership that he keeps thrilled with his funny and educative updates.
According to Nwilo; “I am a writer, lover of photography and music. While I take photos for fun, I cannot sing to save my life. I have lived in Nsukka for four years. I was born in Port Harcourt.”
Nwilo’s publication of A Tiny Place Called Happiness
comes at a time when happiness has become an essential commodity
amongst Nigerian youths, and indeed all Nigerians. Ever the pragmatic
writer, Bura-Bari Nwilo attempts to use the book to reveal that
happiness comes in different shades, for different people. Accordingly,
he perceives “the stories… [as being] reflective of what happiness means
to several people, not necessarily conventions. This is achieved using
the characters and settings.
