“… an unambiguous cautionary statement on the multitudinous and multifaceted hot-button politico-socio-economic issues confronting and degrading the African continent.”

Ekpe Inyang Environmentalist, Playwright & Poet

“The poems in this eclectic collection resonate with the same verve and imagistic intensity and stylistic experimentation characteristic of Nsah Mala’s poetic oeuvre.”

Gilbert Ndi Shang, PhD University of Bayreuth

“Nsah’s verses evoke a society adrift: prey to the ravages of the selfish and irresponsible actions of modern man or, better still, postmodern man. Escape does not seem to be possible, not even in foreign climes. The destruction heralded is predictably taking eschatological proportions! Is salvation envisageable?”

Yvonne Iden NGWA, PhD, Lecturer, ENS Yaoundé
