Diary of a Homeless Prodigal

by Obi Egbuna

Diary of a Homeless Prodigal is a collection of short essays first written for the newspaper Renaissance (Lagos), and brings together the authors ideas and impressions during his years abroad and at home. The final extended piece is an extract from the diary he kept whilst in Brixton prison. In it he reflects upon poverty and prostitution, and the position of blacks throughout the world. He considers the social contradictions of European/American civilisation, many of which lie along racial lines, where philosophies and religions declaim universal brotherhood and sufferage, whilst an economic structure divides mankind into exploiters and expoited.
