Sozaboy describes the fortunes of a young naive recruit in the Nigerian Civil War: from the first proud days of recruitment to the disillusionment, confusion and horror that follows. The author's use of 'rotten English' - a mixture of Nigerian pidgin English, broken English and idiomatic English - makes this a unique and powerful novel.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This is both a novel of self-discovery and an indictment of a corrupt and muddled war a kind of sombre picaresque lifted by the vivacity of its language'

Helen Birch, City Limits

William Boyd, who has written the introduction to Sozaboy, has described the author as 'an extraordinary man and an extraordinary writer.'
