The Final Testament of a Minor God

by Chuma Nwokolo

KSh 900

The hundred poems in this anthology strike a balance between orthodoxy and rebellion, between modern and heritage. The poetic voice is poised between the caustic and the comic, but the lines are always insightful. With Nigeria for foreground, the poems veer from the old Sudan to the new South Africa, from science to terrorism, exploring themes from war to weddings and always provoking the reader to a second, more surprised look at the lived life, even as trees, rivers and planets – and of course, minor gods – find their peculiar voice.
