Short Description: Hot City, Cold Hearts: An evocative novel of the promise, expectation, and disappointment of post-colonial Nigeria. The novel illuminates, through a mix of fact and fiction, a seminal moment in modern history: Nigeria’s fervent passage through a period of immense oil wealth in the 1970s to a sudden descent into a cataclysmal debt trap in the early 1980s. This chaotic period, captured within the city of Lagos, is experienced alongside the protagonist Femi Falashe, a young engineer seeking to get his life back in track after a sudden job loss, as well as five other unforgettable characters,  all in a hopeless quest to find their groove.

Short Description: He was just another unemployed youth, fed up with his failures and even contemplating suicide. But Denrele Gabriel miraculously wins the grand lottery prize and things begin to look a lot better for him. He also discovers that he has an amazing gift for winning in the lotteries, and this makes him very wealthy. The entire world, astounded by his uncanny luck, finally stands for Denrele Gabriel. But the lottery cabal are not amused, as several of them have gone broke and closed down because of the extraordinary luck of the man now popularly known as Denge. To their further frustration, their several attempts to assassinate Denrele fail. After Denrele breaks a peace agreement with them never to play the lotteries anymore, the cabal unleashes on him all the machines of war that they could find. But Denrele is once again saved by the hands of an unexpected angel of providence – a once jilted lover. However, he discovers, to his sorrow, that things are never as you dream they are.  A roaring satirical comedy.
