The Tale of the Harmattan By Tanure Ojaide Cover Image
Not on our shelves. Usually arrives at The Bookworm in 4-7 days from distributor/publisher.
Without exception, non-returnable.


In this collection, Nigerian poet Tanure Ojaide adopts the persona of a homeboy griot returning from travels to be confronted by the devastation wrought by oil greed, politics, and technology upon his beloved Niger Delta; its environment, civilisation and people. It becomes a tragedy of corruption, suffering and dispossession in sharp contrast to the eco-sensitive animism of his youth. Angry, elegiac and lyrical, this collection allows the reader insight far beyond the reach of journalism or prose.
