Short stories set in both Nigeria and the U.S. Many of the stories are very short, almost snapshots. The characters are usually young and uncynical. Some stories are funny, human stories.

A good read, interesting stories.

Osondu packs a lot into these short stories so that you still feel like you've joined the characters worlds, if only briefly.
