... an intensely moving account of severe personal suffering dictated by falsehoods, the banalities and the panoply of macabre intrigues by leadership that indicts virtue and celebrates crime. The author constructs the story with verve and skilful artistry, rendered with poetic force and cosmic irony.

... a highly thought-provoking story. Was it the day God made Lucia a woman or the day felony, moral decadence and nonchalance were institutionalised in Ewawa that God blinked? This is the puzzle that haunts whoever reads this tale about the way human beings chart out their lives, some in grinding destitution and others in the splendour of opulence, in this putrid African country -Ewawa.
