“Bill Ndi’s Epigrams forces the mind to reconsider the world ostensibly transformed into a canvas, life a painting and events varied shades that facilitate or complicate emerging renditions. Thematically and stylistically eclectic and puzzling at times—hence the lushness of its mood—the volume is vibrant, challenging, yet refreshing. In the end, the reader is left richer as he begins to wonder afresh at so much that had been taken for granted.”

Emmanuel Fru Doh, Century College Minnesota, USA

“Covering a wide range of concerns, the epigrams in Epigrams often come with the imagery of the human heart. They drive the reader to introspection, i.e. plunge the reader into the psyche for the exploration of the inner life for inner peace and quiet. This theme is the most powerful.”

Benjamin H. Fishkin, Department of English and Foreign Languages, Tuskegee University, Alabama, USA

Epigrams is a compendium of sagacious aphorisms in which Bill F. Ndi has dared to stand on the shoulders of the Muses to see in his own mind’s eye; to decipher the indicible. The poet’s locus is the all-too-human foible but the bull’s eye is the optical illusion engendered by the misreading of life’s chessboard. He chides, lambastes and laughs under his sleeve, all in an effort to return to sanity a world gone berserk.”

Peter Wuteh Vakunta, Department of Defense Language Institute, Presidio of Monterey, USA
