House of Symbols by Akachi Adimora Ezeigbo



5 in stock


Very few writers can give life and essence to their work as Akachi Adimora-Ezeigbo does in this remarkable novel where the deep voice of tradition and the significant breadth of the ‘rememberer’ blend in a notable symphony that fills the reader up to the brim.

House Of Symbols is a remarkable achievement in the plot, style, characterization, atmosphere, and every other thing that goes into a powerful novel. It is the story of the sensitive Osai as well as his Eaglewoman into whose bag ‘money flows like the Otaru River.’ Terror mingles with humor, and pain with pleasure in this fascinating saga set in a town in Eastern Nigeria.

This is a profoundly written book, a work of immense significance which fills an aching vacuum in African Literature
