Description

In these wide-ranging stories, Barrett roams the streets with people from all stations of life. A minor policeman, full of the authority and corruption of his uniform, beats his wife. A family’s fortunes fall from love and wealth to infidelity and poverty as poor choices unfurl over three generations. With humour and tenderness Barrett introduces us to an utterly modern Nigeria, where desire is a means to an end, and love is a power as real as money.
