The stories, fresh and powerful, are told from a variety of perspectives, and present a sobering reminder of some of the racial horrors and inequalities still looming large in Nigeria, and the specific problems of the younger generation. In Sin-eater, an unemployed female graduate tells of turning to drug dealing and racketeering in service of the developed world, to earn a living.

In Too black for heaven a political prisoner relates the final chilling moments before being sentenced to death by a firing squad for leading a small band of freedom fighers against a government that really is no government because only counter-violence will quell their violence. Name your price exposes the voice of a wily, articulate prostitute as she gives herself in entirety to the struggle for a better life. An earlier version of this collection was co-winner of the Association of Nigerian Authors Award for Prose in 1992.
