Today is a happy day for me, I feel so proud today. I am proud to announce that my dad has just released his 3rd book:
You see my dad is one of the main influences I have to even be a writer of anything in the first place. He used to get me to write essay's as a child. So me doing this blog at all is definitely down to him instilling in me that discipline because I love writing.
My dad has always been writing, he used to have his own column in a very big Nigerian newspaper. So I am glad he finally returned to what I know to be his real passion with this book. It follows in the literary chronology of Chinua Achebe and Chimamanda Adichie. They are the other 2 great igbo writers I know.
I haven't read this book yet because it just dropped but I can't wait. I know it gives an inside story to what happened before Nigeria's independence and immediately after. I don't wanna blow my horn but my grandfater the late Raymond Njoku was part of that movement. This book is a collection of my dad's memoirs telling the story from a personal point of view.
If you want to buy this book it is on amazon go here for more info: http://tinyurl.com/ImagesOfaNativeSon
