Short Description: A true life story of events that happened during the Biafra/Nigeria war otherwise called the Nigerian civil war. It chronicles several terrible events never before reported. There is also the background historical antecedents that eventually culminated in the civil war. The war while it lasted was not all about killing, maiming, hunger, and starvation, and the various sadistic behaviours that were exhibited including, regrettably, cannibalism. There was unbelievably so much fun, music, and profession of love, lots of which are captured for comic relief. I refer to it as Africa’s version of ‘gone with the wind.’

Short Description: When Nadine is confronted with the reality of her failing marriage, her first instinct is to work it out. She has had it drummed into her that marriage is ‘for better, for worse’. Walking out is just not an option – her faith would condemn her and her culture would make her a pariah.

The combination of Nadine’s background, education, social standing, friendships, faith, experiences and past relationships is meant to equip her to become a success. Failure is alien to her and love means forgiving at all cost.

As she tries to survive and make the most of the curves that life has thrown her, she discovers that ‘success’ is a subjective term, and that ‘happily ever after’ is something that you have to discover and define for yourself . . .

Short Description: The waiting is becoming endless. Hopes are dashed in th private and public domains. Very wait casts a denim of despair on the faces of the builders of a new dawn “inhaling the animated air of the germinating season” now looking forlorn as the “object of fancy meanders and disappears away into fleeting fantasy”. The poems in this collection convoke images of despondency, failed leadership, lost labour and ennui in the face of love and abundance. Broken Pitchers is a metaphor about our ebbing common aspirations as a people and a nation. Who will enfire and remould these broken pitchers?

Number of Pages: 94

Publication Year: August, 2012

Publisher: Kraft Books, Ibadan

Short Description: To Return from the Void and Vanishing Vapour are creative exercises in music and dance respectively, to project the author’s contributions to nation-building. In To Return from the Void, things fall apart after the collaborative victory of the Dentarean leaders. Absolute power soon corrupts absolutely. Dentarea becomes an arena of malfeasance manned by careless, carefree and rudderless leaders. Now, unity, truthfulness, love, commonsense and genuineness are all that are required to return from the void. Sunnie Ododo’s creative ingenuity in adapting the Ebira mythology on the energy of witchcraft, and the counterforce of masquerade in Vanishing Vapour is an attempt to showcase the African solution to national and global threats.
