Short Description: ‘Death and The King’s Grey Hair’ examines the use and misuse of absolute power based on an ancient Jukun myth of young kings and short reigns. ‘Truce with the Devil’ is a satire on the later abandonment of the creeds of Marxism by its adherents, a kind of mockery of turncoat revolutionaries in the grip of practical social realities. ‘Fringe Benefits’, a radio play, is an expose of the happenings in our ivory tower, seen from the eyes of a participant-observer.

Number of Pages: 106

Publication Year: July 16, 2015

Publisher: Oracle Books

ISBN: 978-979811146

Available at: Amazon.com

Short Description: Anierobi’s robust imagination takes him to the innermost recesses of our world to tell stories that derive from our workday experiences. His language is pacy and his characters range from the swashbuckling archetypes to the ingenious stereotypes, whose manners are a predator on your curiosity, sometimes stretching credulity to an unbelievable limit with twists and turns.

The characters . . . represent different shades of society: the heartbroken couple in search of the fruit of the womb, the daredevil armed robbers on the trail of a daredevil driver, the maverick father, the youthful lover questing for a happy ending, the unemployed grad[uate] whose tottering feet are an inspiration for the cartoon man, the disgruntled workers whose take-home can’t take home anymore, the hopeless youth courting Mammon to cut short the long path to his rainy days…

Path of Madness is a reflection of our contemporary logjams: there is a suffusion of blues in Anierobi’s tales. His concerns [cover] the harrowing experiences an average Nigerian undergoes in a quest for fulfillment…”
