Set in present-day Nigeria, Perfect Mother focuses on a turbulent week in the lives of a moneyed middle-class Lagos family. Ani Umoh, a successful businessman, lives happily with wife Celia and their three young daughters. The only thing missing from their lives is a son; and Ani’s mother, visiting from the village, stirs discord by agitating for Celia to provide an heir or step aside so that Ani can take a second wife. Celia is more than a match for her mother-in-law. But an unexpected revelation drives Celia to desperate measures in order to restore harmony to her house¬hold… with tragic consequences. Compelling and humorous, Perfect Mother is a richly emotional portrait of family life in modern Nigeria: where the city dwellers, though prosperous, cannot escape the traditional values and superstitions of the village… Uduak Akpabio Umoren is a novelist and playwright. Perfect Mother was nominated for the NLNG-sponsored Nigeria Prize for Literature and is featured in the first edition of MASTERPIECES OF AFRICAN LITERATURE, edited by Professor Ebele Eko. The American-based Kirkus Reviews compares it to the works of Shakespeare and Chimamanda Adichie. Perfect Mother is a thrilling, delightful read that also highlights issues within our society. ...

Nights of the Creaking Bed is full of colourful characters involved in affecting dramas: a girl who is rejected in love because she has three brothers to look after; a middle-aged housewife who finds love again but has an impossible decision to make; a young man who can’t get the image of his naked, beautiful mother out of his mind; a child so poor he has to hawk onions on Christmas day – and many others. Some, initially full of hope, find their lives blighted by the cruelty of others, or by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or by just not knowing the “right” people.
