a pelican of wilderness (farafina)
About this book
At first, I thought A Pelican of The Wilderness was a deviation from Jacqueline’s usual style of writing about orphaned children and broken families, tough city life and dysfunctional societies, but I soon realised she had merely raised her penchant to a whole new level. The seemingly orphaned oil and blood stained creeks of the Niger Delta, lands broken and exploited by rebel warlords and governments alike, and a society that blissfully ignores it all. Pelican is both fiction and fact inextricably and brilliantly woven into a tale that will have you riveted to the very end. —CHIMA OKENIMKPE, Creative Director, Insight Communications.
