In a collection of essays published by Harper Collins UK, twenty-four Nigerian writers detail the realities and contradictions of patriotism whilst examining the role of class and privilege in Nigerian society. Juxtaposing inherited traditions with the diasporic experience, these writers explore the power of storytelling and its intrinsic link to Nigeria’s history. Nancy Adimora talks to three contributors: Anietie Isong, Oyinkan Akande and Umar Turaki.
