Read in October, 2011

Interconnected short stories revolving around a journalist living in Lagos under military rule. The first story, set during the journalist's prison sentence, is phenomenal. I was less impressed by the subsequent stories, but a couple of them were quite good, and I only really disliked one (the bland "The Angel").
