10 short stories dealing with African reality from traditional to modern times. Subjects range from the origins of witchcraft, debt collection in the olden days, marriages between hostile families, the appearance of a military officer presumed dead in a plane crash and the common ground between a feminist and a pastor. In Ojaide's stories, the unthinkable can happen, the imagined could be real and the real could be fantastical. Ultimately, humanity is depicted as fragile before fate - and the assertion of one's humanity is an ennobling pursuit.
