Set in the fictional African country of Ghaspata, a country a tad too suspiciously like Ghana, these eleven short stories hinge on themes of identity, violence, love and cruelty, fear, desperation, and man’s search for happiness and meaning.
Adolika Nenah Sowah’s quirky imagination produces an oddly familiar world, laced with bolts of striking new realities that the author weaves into her stories – a teacher strangled by the very trees whose branches he uses to cane children, and a mysterious okro plying the skies of Ghaspata.
Compelling, ironic, bizarre, and immensely humorous, The Enemy of the State and Other Stories is sure to leave readers highly entertained.
In her foreword to the book, Margaret Ismaila, PhD, Academic and Researcher says:
The Enemy of State and Other Stories is an extremely exciting and thought-provoking addition to Ghanaian literature and its potential to recover the lost reading culture of younger generations is high. It is a must-read for both young and old.
