Short Description: The year is 1975. Young American operative Steve “Tsetse” Seidel arrives in Nigeria to filter classified information from the Dark Continent under the cover of a Lagos based aircraft parts facility. “Tsetse” is a scrappy engineer the Agency decides to let fly solo on this assignment. All in Lagos is not as expected, and while struggling with cultural and business practices, Seidel is forced to rely on four recent hires at the parts company (Laidi, Dhobi, “Sam” and Dad), his acquired village dog Kobos, as well as Bisola—a dangerously beautiful University student he meets at the nightclub Bacchus. Seidel senses something is drastically wrong within the U.S. espionage network. Chance discoveries on his part lead down trails of Russian and Chinese involvements. He has fallen in love with Africa and, in trying to protect those closest to him, must flee. Moral, mental and spiritual compass points shift as he searches for the proper path.

Short Description: PRETTY MISS JIDENMA CHARLENE MUNONYEDI, going on twenty-five, has just lost her doting and famous philanthropist father suddenly in a helicopter crash during her national youth service. Months after, she is asked to run for mayor of her backward Ide division. This is an affair which Jidenma will find pretty laughable given her apathy towards partisan politics.

However, with her mother, her fiancé and other well-wishers lending their hands, Jidenma reluctantly accepts the battle of a lifetime that will pit her against the lecherous, superbly corrupt and yet ever-scheming POWER party kingpin, Sir NKEMENA PAULSON EGWIM, and his cohort.

But vowing never to rig the polls in her quest to her people’s dream mayor, how far will this political neophyte go against a ruthless POWER cabal that is hell-bent on retaining her stranglehold on this oil-rich constituency? So as the campaigns spread from her homebase to the fiery slums and the numerous epidemic-prone ghettos and into the flood-ravaged riverine extensions of her definitively-backward but oil-rich Ide division, how on earth can the naive Jidenma and her PASUMA party make history for Africa?

Short Description: Twice in my life, I’d been involved in terrible car accident which could have led to untimely death, but for the mercy of God only, it was prevented. And I was a terrible sinner then. I know you also can recall several instances in your life when God had prevented some bad things from happening to you. I also know that you can only attribute such deliverance to nothing but the Mercy of God. But friend, God wants each of us to move beyond this Common Mercy into enjoying the fullness of His Grace. That Saving Grace entered into my life while attending a 3-day prayer and fasting program as a visitor at the Mountain of Fire and Miracle Church, Karu, Abuja in 2009.The last cigarette I took the evening before the program was the last I had ever taken. That divine encounter led to terminating the 15 years of addiction to smoking and drinking of alcohol. Also two years after the program, I was delivered from 21 years of sleeplessness (also known as Insomnia). These all happened through the Grace of God and by the application of certain Biblical principles stated in this book. If the person follows these principles which led to the restoration of my battered destiny and currently giving my life stability and meaning, then such a person will surely in no distant time give a testimony. God is no respecter of persons, if HE has done it for me, HE can as well do it for anyone.

What is Not Yours is Not Yours by Helen Oyeyemi

View all books listed on New Books Nigeria

Title: What is Not Yours is Not Yours

Author: Helen Oyeyemi

Genre: Fiction (Short Stories)

Format: Paperback

Book Dimension: 5.5 X 8.4

Number of Pages: 352

Publication Year: March 8, 2016

Publisher: Riverhead Books

ISBN: 978-1594634635

Available at: Amazon Stores

Short Description: From the award-winning author of Boy, Snow, Bird and Mr. Fox comes an enchanting collection of intertwined stories.
 
Playful, ambitious, and exquisitely imagined, What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours is cleverly built around the idea of keys, literal and metaphorical. The key to a house, the key to a heart, the key to a secret—Oyeyemi’s keys not only unlock elements of her characters’ lives, they promise further labyrinths on the other side. In “Books and Roses” one special key opens a library, a garden, and clues to at least two lovers’ fates. In “Is Your Blood as Red as This?” an unlikely key opens the heart of a student at a puppeteering school. “‘Sorry’ Doesn’t Sweeten Her Tea” involves a “house of locks,” where doors can be closed only with a key—with surprising, unobservable developments. And in “If a Book Is Locked There’s Probably a Good Reason for That Don’t You Think,” a key keeps a mystical diary locked (for good reason).

Oyeyemi’s tales span multiple times and landscapes as they tease boundaries between coexisting realities. Is a key a gate, a gift, or an invitation? What Is Not Yours Is Not Yours captivates as it explores the many possible answers.
