Voice of America by E.C. Osondu
E C Osondu’s debut collection of short stories.
Many of the characters here have a relationship of sorts with the US, be it the refugee children who dream of being adopted by US parents or the mother who writes to her son who has emigrated to the US asking why his Western Union payments to her have dried up.
He casts a pitiless eye on Nigeria: brutally artless on the commodification of women and young girls in much of Nigerian society, the wastrel dreams of many of its young men, and the savagery of the police force.
