The Ghost of Sani Abacha by Chuma Nwokolo
A humorous collection of incisively observed short stories set in a post‑autocratic country whose indigenes have varying levels of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorders) from three decades of military occupation. In the title story, a ﬂedgling politician walks a tightrope between a conscience and the inspiration of dictator Sani Abacha's lifestyle, determined to avoid his mentor's colourful death in the laps of imported prostitutes. In Glu*on, a hungry village has one day to eat a beached whale before it rots in a humorous retelling of the Biblical account of Jonah and the whale.
