ADDY THE READING MACHINE

FORGET THE WEDDING WEBBIES, BOOKS ARE SO THIS SEASON

Hey folks,

I have basically become the lean mean reading machine of Lagos. I have purchased nearly every book in the 'nigerian' fiction section of Nu Metro. Went to a book fair at Unilag last week and bought three books, which I will blog about when I finish with them. Oh by the way Kaine Agary who wrote Yellow-Yellow will be at Nu Metro at the Silverbird Galleria on Saturday the 19th. I am not sure what time but if you get there early you can catch a movie or grab some popcorn. Back to my gist. So yeah so I am bouncing off the wall with my thing for books. So here's what I am reading now and trust me this book is HOT and STEAMY with drama and that's just chapter 1,2 and 3. I had to force myself to go to bed at 10pm, 2 hours later than usual for a Thursday night, since I have to be at work at 5am on Fridays. The thing that s pissing me off though is that this book has been in circulation for a while and NOBODY thoughtto tell me there was good book such as this one in existence. Good because of the topic it deals with. I decided to google the author up to see what has been said about him and the book. Here's what's on Molara Wood's Blog. As in it is so stale that I am embarrassed to be buzzing about it. There's nothing as annoying as rocking last season's fashion and it applies to books too. I am sure you are wondering who I am talking about and what book. It's Jude Dibia's Walking in Shadows.

(***oops wrong picture***)

The book tackles homosexuality in Nigeria and contradictions in heterosexual love and relationships. HAA!!! This dude is BOLD and a genius for going where many refuse to go either because of their own prejudices, hypocrity or the fear of backlash. With all the Sharia fever in this country. And how did the government not ban the book with all the fiasco they were creating in the senate over the issue. Is that a sign of progress or that was an oversight. That is just fascinating and I AM ONLY ON CHAPTER 3. I am afraid of what other drama is in the book. And ofcourse a very ignorant and drama concentrated me keeps wondering whether the author is gay or not. Not that it matters, I just need to satisfy my curiosity (anyone with the inside scoop?) Well that's all I can say about the book for now so that I don't spoil it for you guys. I trust you will go and grab a copy. if you are a curious cat like myself see more in this interview with Onyeka Nwelue a blogger. I am off to ABuja for the Nigeria Music Awards, which I trust Bella Naija will have an update on before the show ends. Keep it up gurl. I am sure i'll be done with the book by the time I return on Sunday so probably we should get to discussing this book by next week. If you have already read it please feel free to post your comments on the book. Jude Dibia's second book UNBRIDLED is also in stores now and I gather it's really good. Yes you guessed it, I have a copy already. HA HA HA

As a writer, can I add that you do not have to be GAY or LESBIAN to write about these communities or about love or relationships in these communities.

@ 2plus2 -- ofcourse we know that, but curiousity makes you ask a lot of questions even when you know they are silly.

Hi,
waiting for your review of this book... I have read it too and found it simply awesome. The picture you have isn't that of Jude Dibia though, but of Onyeka who interviewed him some time ago.
I'm half way through with Unbridled, and... darn... it's just a good pleasure ride... u have to read it... it's better than WWS.
