Short Description: Warri, October 1992: Seething with idleness and nonchalance, sick of watching his parents fight, 16-year-old Ewaen is waiting for university to begin, waiting for something to happen. Months later, Ewaen and friends are finally enrolled as freshmen at the University of Benin. Their routine now consists of hanging out in a parking lot trading jibes, chasing girls and sex, and learning to manage the staff strikes and crumbling infrastructure. But Nigerian campuses in the 1990s can be dangerous places, too. Violent confraternities stake territories and stalk for new recruits. An incident of petty crime snowballs into tragedy…

Fine Boys is Eghosa Imasuen’s second novel. In the witty, colloquial style fast becoming his trademark, Imasuen presents everyday Nigerian life against the backdrop of the pro-democracy riots of the 1980s and ‘90s, the lost hopes of June 12th, and the terror of the Abacha years. Indeed Fine Boys is a chronicle of not just a time in Nigeria, but its post-Biafran generation.
.
Fine Boys was first published in e-book format in September, 2011.

Personified, War declares, ‘I am War!/ The omnipresent vagabond/I reap in the finale of a weak bond… He vowed to gain dominance in the affairs of earthlings in one day. The playwright used this premonitory deadline to foster swift interplay of characters with rich poetic lines. The play’s climax underscores war as fratricidal tragedy usually caused by trivial things.

Number of Pages:  222

Publication Year: April 29, 2012

Publisher: CreateSpace

ISBN: 9781468124934

Available at: CreateSpace Store

Short Description: Drawing a thin line between fact and fiction; this tale proves that reality can be more DRAMATIC than any fiction.

A transcendental concept of retribution that cuts across the oriental, western, and eastern cultures of the world. Artistically portrayed here in popular culture and for POSTERITY:
The Lore of Karmalu’ is a metaphysical gift from the Igbo people of West Africa to the world.

The individual versus the society; morality is put to test in the sociopolitical arena of the largest black nation. Accentuated by an abstraction of graphic illustrations, this story takes the imagination to uncanny dimensions.

The author blends the three forms of writing: Poetry, Prose and Drama into a seamless story telling device; a style he calls his own.
