Fall bush! great description. Waiting for the next sequence.

Mallam Shehu

Good work sir,

sounds more or less like a well written Kincaidian autobiographical fiction.

I find the fluency of the language very good, the metaphor, "well before the last leaf of the fiery maple gave way to the first winter flake" is also a good transition to the next chapter.

Well, I know this is just a warm up, I'll recommend you try the stream of consciousness technique or Africanization of your fiction, autobiographical fiction is at times very difficult to captivate reader's attention, lest you're already famous prior to your first writing.

At least, this is no boring account that has been remastered from a "Mbuh house" tittle-tattle.


Thanks very much for your comment, Chris. I really appreciate that. I will sit on the next sequence and let's hope you find it equally entertaining!



I really appreciate your insightful analysis and critical perspective. It's rare to get a critique like yours, which not only appreciates but also frames the work, points out its weaknesses, directs it, makes salient recommendations on technique alongside introducing a readership perspective. Your mention of Jamaica Kincaid - whom I haven't really read at length, shows me how versed you are with post-colonial literature. I will place an order for some of her works and read them critically. Thanks for the endeavor. I cannot state how heartwarming I find your words and fruitful perspectives. Thanks very much, and hope you will find the next chapter and episode will be equally good. I will take your broader advice to heart as I go.


Mallam Shehu,

Apology for Omission:

I'm sorry, I left out your title, Mallam. That's a slip while writing! Accept my respects.

Mallam Shuhu

No qualm, you may try Kincaid’s “Lucy” or “The Autobiography of my Mother”, part of my master thesis was based on these 2books. I am sure after reading them you will enrich your scope. Kudos and we’re looking forward to enjoying the follow-up story.

Va Boy

I am liking this, a literary discussion. No fireworks.

D. Wale

This sounds exciting. Looking forward to the follow- up.
