Maik Nwosu - In the Time of His Excellency

Maik Nwosu has an interesting short story in The Dublin Quarterly. I admire Nwosu's writings. Sometimes though, I tend to believe that he has a way of estranging his fictional world that the reader has difficult time relating it to easily identifiable reality. I found it excruciating getting through Invisible Chapters and Alpha Song.
There is no doubt though that he is very much interested in African reality and is determined to portray it aesthetically.
Enjoy "In the Time of His Excellency."

  1. I was looking for a review of Alpha Song when I stumbled upon your blog post. I found the few statements you made about the very useful. I was wondering if there is any other place where I can get a full review because it will come in handy in the chapter two of my thesis.www.facebook/onyii duru.com
