This book is a collection of narrative nonfiction from writers whose foray into the landscape of the mind is a compelling signpost to formidable writing. Here are stories that are true not only as fact but as windows that open into our contemporary African existence.
New writing by Adams Adeosun, Afope Ojo, Caleb Ajinomoh, Godwin Luba, Howard M-B Maximus, Lucia Edafioka, Nkiacha Atemnkeng, Raoul Djimeli, Sada Malumfashi and Socrates Mbamalu.
Limbe To Lagos, arguably the first of its kind, boxed together by Goethe Institute, Bakwa magazine, and Saraba Magazine, while edited by Dami Ajayi, Dzekashu Macviban, and Emmanuel Iduma, is a most fulfilled project in my estimation. I reckon that if we rise above the dismal truth of our nature towards entropy, perhaps, just perhaps, it may morph into a literary foothold — from which many things may spring from — in these parts.

Limbe to Lagos Nonfiction from Cameroon and Nigeria” is an important addition to the corpus of Nigerian-Cameroonian writing and a book that will, in time, define its generation as an augury of a new literary ferment much like Harry Guruba’s seminal Voices from the fringe: an ANA anthology of new Nigerian poetryenriched Nigerian literature with a new tribe of poets.
