Betrayal of Gloria and Other Stories is an anthology of short stories that catalogues the various ups and downs in the day-to-day lives of human beings. It has as its central setting the country of Nigeria and the characters are archetypes of the people we encounter on daily basis – in the bus, in our neighbourhood, in church…name it.
The stories are quite topical and touching, evoking pity with their treatments of gloom and hopelessness deviling the Nigerian society.
Its compilation is done by Blessing Chukwu, from a group of writers who were then undergraduates at the University of Ibadan.₵10.00Quick View

Like a basket full of coloured beads, like a kente strip of many colours, like a xylophone that produces a thousand vibrant sounds, this collection is made up of stories as varied as the diversity represented in Ghana, from Hohoe to Hamle.
These stories represent the budding creative spirit of the current generation of young Ghanaian writers. These new voices have become the refreshing perspective from which to consider the Ghanaian narrative in a thousand words. Or less.
This is an anthology of hope. Never have so many young people captured the stories of our time the way this army of writers have immortalised. But beyond the greatness in the stories, Kenkey for Ewes guarantees one thrilling fact: it is a great time to be a global citizen.₵45.00Quick View
