    Kasali’s Africa seems like Anjorin’s experimental writing project. It seems like a collection of short stories with Kasali as the central character, but it also has a few poems.
    Kasali as a character is well-rounded, very human. Not a typical baddie, but with many outdated ideas that could make a 21st century feminist puke.
    He is a polygamist and he sees himself as competent enough to advice dictators and corrupt politicians.
    We see Kasali’s family and church leaders and witchdoctors, hence it is easy to recognize this Africa.
    A must read for lovers of short stories.
