John Anakwenze: Udenka
|Verlag:||novum pro Verlag|
This is great story about a "doctor-in training" against the background of the Nigerian Civil War. Being a medical student is difficult enough without having one's studies interrupted by war. John Anakwenze provides the reader with a fascinating account of his life in Lagos and thereafter, his "escape" to Eastern Nigeria. He went to the U.K. for postgraduate studies before returning to Nigeria in 1985. His narrative is crammed with stories about the diverse characters who he met, including the myriad girlfriends. He had a great fondness for nightclubs and was also a very talented storyteller. John survived squalor, constantly moving from place to place and finally succeeding as a locum consultant physician in geriatric medicine in the United Kingdom.
