Arn much about him through narratives the love of his life married a benefactor to pay for her dying mother s care his close friend lost his ntire family and went mad with grief as the army moved in on student protests In the longest of the stories Poverty Street Lomba lives among others who are struggling to get by a young boy who was Death in Mumbai exiled to his aunt s because of a misdemeanor and his teacher Joshua who loves a former pupil Hagar who was forced to turn to prostitutionIt s a bleak picture of the despair the frenzy the stubborn hope but above all the airless prison like atmosphere of Nigeria a land gone mad during the Babangida and Abacha years and most readers me among them will likely not know the background history and repressive military regimes that rocked Nigeria to its coreBut this book is not about historicity Habila states My concern was for the story that aboveverything Baccarat : La lgende du cristal else In this the author succeeds brilliantly When Lomba visits a slave museum at Badagry his mentor tells him that two slaves who spoke the same language were never kept together Hends the tale by saying O Colégio de Todos os Segredos every oppressor knows wherever one word is joined to another to form a sentence there ll be revolt At another point he considers there is so much we can t understand because we are only characters in a story and our horizon is so narrow and so dark It will be words Habila suggests that offer the power to set us free whether it s within a prison or in the chaos of a brutal military coup Theponymous angel that Lomba awaits is the angel of death but Habila celebrates not death but life hope the possibility of love the beauty of connections the power of journalism and other writing In the March Violets (Bernie Gunther, end the sentence of imprisonment pales next to the sentence that can offer liberty Now as of in times of slavery words can unlock the locks and chains.

This got off to a tricky start maybe that was me xpecting a novel when it s a linked collection of short stories By the A Heart of Stone end I liked it it all comes together in thend it is a clever read about Nigeria and it s political unrest A very disappointing read The book fails to capture the brutality of Sani Abacha s dictatorship as promised What it does is capture the Taking Instruction (Taboo, everyday insanity and contradictions of life in Nigeria whole families dying on the inter city highways young people going insane universities closing down due to student protests or lecturers strikes young women marrying older men for survival and to maintain theirxtended family the sordid and brutal life of a Nigerian prison This is the Nigeria of the last 30 40 years The novel is dry and passionless told in a matter of fact way that fails to capture any sense of the insanity unless of course you are familiar with that insanity In my humble opinion Waiting For An Angel is as close to genius as a writer can get at least that s the way I view any novel which can hold me spellbound for twenty four hours without a single thought about life sustaining necessities As one who lived in Nigeria at the time the novel was set it stirred bittersweet memories of the life under military dictatorships The simple writing belies the sophisticated well observed presentation of the lives of ordinary folks who were by and large the victims of those aberrant days of Nigeria s post colonial history Waiting for An Angel is about Lomba a journalist in Nigeria It shows the disruption caused by the military rule of Nigeria It is very informative Language and Linguistics especially since I did not know much before about the situation in Nigeria It gives a personal perspective of theffects of military rule on individuals students teachers restaurant owners Divertimento etc It is written very beautifully almost poe.

Tically but I did not like this book for the writing style but for the information it provided about life in NigeriaAt times this book was very confusing It has different sections which are about different times in Lomba s life but there aren t really transitions between the sections Also the book is so full of poetic and figurative language that it sometimes seems that Helon Habila was trying to use as many similes and metaphors as he could like a high schooler writing a poem for class At times the writing was beautiful but sometimes it just seemed like too much to me My favorite thing about this book was that it highlighted the significance of the media Habila mphasized that the media s job was to make the public aware of what was going on in the country I think this is very important The Eric Carle Gift Set especially for Americans to recognize right now with the new president The message was very powerful and this book made me rethink the role of the press as I recognized the differences between Nigerian and American mediaThis novel has many mature themes but it is very informative so I recommend it for adults who want to learn about living in Nigeria or living under military rule It is not one of my favorite books I ve read nor would it be at the top of my recommendations list but it does include some very important themes and it is a reminder of the current political struggles in the world It was a terrible time to be alive writes Helon Habila in his aftermathAnd indeed the first story in this book of seven interconnected stories hits the reader with a wallop Lomba a writer is one of many political prisoners whose life has been upended and whose humanity is on the way to beingxtinguished by a corrupt system But who is Lomba really and what brought him to the prisonThe answer isn t revealed until the last story In the interim we le.
