Cup Man and Other Stories

Tikum Mbah Azonga

Cup Man and Other Stories is a collection of eight fictional short stories on themes such as the intrigues of the civil service, drunkenness, theft, matrimonial relations and living as an African immigrant in the West. The stories are a reflection of everyday life with all that goes with it. Each story is complete it itself, with all its humour, wit and figures of speech. Azonga's attention to detail and alert memory enable him to draw on memory and things past in a fascinating way. He excels in the craft of using simple and down-to-earth language, a factor which makes the collection an easy and compelling read.
