No Way to Die

by Linus Asong

What happens when a young man of talent and visions of greatness falls victim to a cruel set of circumstances over which he has no control? No Way to Die is such a story. Dennis Nunqam Ndendemajem gives up! Even when he is given a second chance to start again, he refuses to gather the broken pieces of his life together. He refuses to rebuild, and refuses to live. But he also finds no way to die.

Book Preview


“No Way to Die is unquestionably a psychological novel… Asong revalues the traditional Freudian relationship between the Id, Ego, and Superego and as such demonstrates a certain degree of ‘aesthetic autonomy’ and manifests his craftsmanship…”

Professor Charles Atangana Nama, Department of Modern Languages and Literatures, University of Buea, Cameroon

 “Excellent psychological portraiture… a real world of tragic circumstances and events.”

Professor Robett Mclaren, University of Regina, Canada
