Rufus' blitheful venture to America quickly meets difficulties as he struggles between the pursuit of his career goals and the never-ending pull he feels to return to Nigeria, finding himself intertwined between the ever-drudgery job as a New York cab driver with its inherent dangers, and a tantalizing pull to join the criminal circle of Sebold, a murderous Nigerian crime Lord. In the end Rufus is faced with choices, to stay true to his culture and rebuff his American love affair for his Nigerian love interest; to decide which to say no to: the cab-driving or Sebold's criminal overtures, or the never-ending pull he feels to return to his own country with or without his American dream.

About the author (2004)

Ifedoo Noble Enigwe is a Nigerian-born architect. Born in 1961 and raised in Nigeria but educated in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, he has proven that his upbringing under the blithe influence of oral tradition couldn’t have produced no less a raconteur than what be is today. With several strokes of his pen, be has told a fictional story, yet ably weaving its plot with insights into the Nigeria culture and how it affected his characters in comparison with the “American way of life”, to give readers a close sense of involvement in the lives of Mixed Blessings’ related adventures.
