About this book
Farad is a novel that questions individual difference and change in a multilayered system of narration. The eight chapters intersect with each other only because all the major characters are participants in a mild conflict that takes place in a University Chapel where the Choirmaster has served for 25 years but is unwilling to yield power. Aside this, each chapter takes its own stance, peculiarly addressing change and individuality in middle-class Nigeria. For instance, the first chapter (the only chapter narrated in 3rd person and the longest) is the story of an attempt to heal the mind of a lady who had a sexual affair with a Nigerian dictator, and is with him when he dies mysteriously.
