The Legend of the Rockhills and Other Stories

and Other Stories

Author/Illustrator/Editor: Funso Aiyejina

Winner of the 2000 Commonwealth Writers Prize for the Africa region ” … a unique voice modulated by both the Old World and the New World experience.” – Earl Lovelace

In these bitingly satirical stories, Funso Aiyejina portrays the vicissitudes of life under a military dictatorship in the fictitious Nigerian district of Akoda. Whether describing the travails of villagers, the worries of Chiefs, the cravenness of professors, or the greed of officials, what emerges vividly and memorably in this exciting collection are the humour and courage of ordinary people.
