Wayo Guy and Other Nigerian Short Stories
The stories in this collection of Afrosuspense humorous stories will make you laugh and learn; they will make you smile with joy. They are clever hybrids of African and Western stories of adventure, of attempts at deception, of love and affection, and of family and friends; they are told in a unique writing style that elevates the writing itself to classic prose and poetry while the reader is always rewarded with surprise endings. Chima Uchendu practices law in Washington, D.C.; a former Symposium Editor of The Law Journal at Howard University School of Law, he has a unique style of writing, molded from his Nigerian and American experiences. He calls his narrative style Afrosuspense, which he defines as a focus on traditional African flavor and ethnic idioms, delivered through the vehicle of literary suspense, with a view to arresting the reader's interest and with a promise of a surprise ending. This is Uchendu's second book; his first book, The African Girl, a novel, was published in 1998 (Sungai Books, NJ).
