Kachi A. Ozumba will be talking about his new book The Shadow of a Smile with Mark Reynolds, Commissioning Editor of the literary magazine The Drawbridge.
Torn from a caring father and a loving sister, the young student Zuba is imprisoned for a crime he has not even thought about committing. His misfortune: to live in a world where corruption is rife and honest and law-abiding people are crushed by the wheels of a blind, unscrupulous bureaucracy. What seems at first to be an irksome judiciary misunderstanding gradually becomes a journey through the hell of Nigerian prisons. Only by showing the utmost daring and integrity will Zuba be able to regain his freedom.
