Loud Whispers


Not just a collection of essays but a comical, satirical and analytical book on contemporary and topical issues in Nigeria. If you are not mentioned, you probably are not relevant in Nigeria’s contemporary history. A must read. Edgar’s grasp of English language is phenomenal and his ability to bring humour into the gravest issues are extraordinary. Very keen observer of Nigeria’s socio-political and cultural space. His knowledge of the “Nigerian” is uncanny. An incredibly talented writer.
