Inside Sodom

Front Cover
Xlibris Corporation, 2010 - Fiction - 136 pages
In Inside Sodom, there are several actors; "real-life" actors. Nnedi is a tantalizing black beauty, artist per excellence, prodigy but born into abysmal poverty. She survived serial childhood sexual abuse, teenage motherhood, and unmitigated deprivations during her college years to a life of triumph! Her natural endowments contributed in no small way to her ordeals; an object of intense temptations and pressures from the high and mighty. She rose above all odds to be crowned a beauty queen. Eleanor is a living angel; a rich pink rose but planted in an infested garden. Circumstances and fate played their turns early in her childhood, and she found herself in a missionary orphanage. But fate wasn't done yet with her blows; her stepmom was to be the next victim of death's cruelty. All the ropes that bound El to sanity and civility got snapped. She was released to an old beckoning orchestra, and having been commandeered by the mysterious, she became a whore of no mean repute. But then fate began singing an awkward tune. When it reached a crescendo, she came home to motherhood. Her husband was no other but a mogul in the corporate world, son of a preacher of no mean repute. The pages are garnished, foremost with passionate poetry and above all with pidgin English-the "lingua franca" of Sote. With the former, the inner recesses of the actors' and actor-writer's minds were well captured, whereas with the latter garnishing, the grassroots; the flavor of Sote was not left out this real-life drama. The reader is encouraged to imbibe some pidgin verses with which to explore the riches and absurdities of Sote as an emerging tourist destination.
