Two New Books Out of Nigeria and Australia are Released
Boko Haram: Between Myth and Reality, by N. I. O. & D. L-B
This startling book, written by two people who have a love for Nigeria; one living in Nigeria and the other in the US, brings to light many of the hidden truths about the Boko Haram, a deadly Muslim sect which is killing Christians and Muslims alike, in much of northern Nigeria. According to the publisher, "There are misconceptions about Nigeria and this book will help correct some of those wrong impressions. Plus, one of the writers is an eye witness to some of the terrible things that have happened in northern Nigeria."
Because of the serious nature of the subject and the fact that one of the authors is still living in northern Nigeria, The two writers have decided to use only their initials, N.I.O. and D.L-B, to identify themselves as the writers of this crucial book. Anyone who is interested in Nigeria, the Nigerian government, or the Boko Haram, should read this book. There are truths and history written here that explain much about how this sect began and how it grew to become the deadly force it is today. This is a book that could only have been written by someone who dared to be as close to this cult as possible; someone who stays, in spite of the dangers faced on a daily basis.
A Cup of Verse, by Emmanuel Osondu & Elisabeth McGrath
A Poetry collection dedicated to Dele Giwa, Nigerian journalist and founding Editor-in-Chief, Newswatch Magazine, assassinated by letter bomb in October, 1986.
In this beautiful poetry collection, these writers explore political and social history using the classical medium of verse. Both poets also look at the joys and sorrows of life from different perspectives. There are echoes of masters like Machado and Blake in these poems. There are also the influences of Okigbo and Dennis Brutus, but the individual styles of these poets ring out like a metal gong.
The themes in this book run the gamut of love, hope, grief, loss, peace and war. There are also familiar leitmotifs in the pages of this moving poetry collection. Open the pages and enjoy the experience of two writers from different backgrounds who have found common ground in poetry.....
"These are the fruits of my introspection
Pressed into a large cup of verse."
