Godwin Meniru returns to his early life wartime experiences in Biafra to craft this second volume of poems and a mini memoir. Godwin uses poetry and prose to process key events in his birth country of Nigeria right from the beginning of her nationhood, which coincides with his birth year, through a war that left about three million Igbo citizens dead, and lasting damage to ethnic relations and economic progress. There is also the continuing trauma of being Igbo in Nigeria, to consider. In so doing he tells stories of pain and hurt, suffering and political exclusion, and the discouragingly continued dysfunction in the society.
