Trilogy. Children of Koloko, Gamji College, The Vistor

by Chin Ce

Chin Ce, one of the important voices of contemporary African writing, is author of three published works of fiction: Children of Koloko, Gamji College and The Visitor which appear together here for the first time. Children of Koloko is his first novel told through the eyes of young Yoyo and his friends, Buff and Dickie. The story spans the life and habits of a Koloko, semi urban Nigerian town, and her people. In the short story collection Children of Koloko Chin Ce displays his craft in dialogue in his portraiture of characters who only reflect the modern sensitivities of Africa's dying values. Gamji College is Chin Ce's second published prose fiction dealing with the character of the new nation states of Africa under the various civilian and military regimes that govern them in the twenty-first century. The Visitor is a story set in the future of 2040 AD where Deego views a movie and triggers off a series of experiences which draw from a history of crime and death. It features Mensa as villain and victim in a 1994 Third World country, Nigeria.
