The Epistle of Udume

by Solomon C. A. Awuzie

The Epistle of Udume follows Udume’s journey from childhood to adulthood. Set in some recognizable Nigerian spaces, Udume is crucial to the novel where the other characters’ experience stems from his connection to them. Udume’s positioning as the narrator in the novel makes him central to its explorations of the themes that are connected to the happenings in Nigeria. Once again through this novel, Solomon Awuzie masterly weds his artistic vision in a creative matrimony.
