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
