Title: An Orchestra of Minorities
Author: Chigozie Obioma
In this contemporary twist on Milton, Dante and Homer written in the mythic style of the Igbo literary tradition, Chigozie Obioma weaves a heart-wrenching epic about the tension between destiny and determination.
Umuahia, Nigeria. Chinonso, a young poultry farmer, sees a woman attempting to jump to her death from a highway bridge. Horrified by her recklessness, Chinonso joins her on the roadside and hurls two of his most prized chickens into the water below to demonstrate the severity of the fall. The woman, Ndali, is moved by his sacrifice. Bonded by this strange night on the bridge, Chinonso and Ndali fall in love. But Ndali is from a wealthy family, and when her parents object to the union because Chinonso is uneducated, he sells most of his possessions to attend university in Cyprus. Once in Cyprus, Chinonso discovers that all is not what it seems. Furious at a world which continues to relegate him to the sidelines, Chinonso gets further and further away from his dream, from Ndali and the place he called home.
A home away from home. Filled with literary minds, cool people and very versatile category of readers. I enjoyed joining the meetups. I would recommend it for booklovers too.
Mainland Book Cafe is more than a book club. It is where you are free to be who and what you are. I am not going to trade it for anything in this world.
The perfect place for every book lover and art lover. The community is warm and friendly and it is a safe place for all conversations ranging from books, to politics, love, sex, relationships and life.
