I am thirty and I have fears. But somehow, I have managed to stay sane and optimistic. I have tried to find out where I put all that years but while I may be tempted to play down on the little miracles of breathing and believing, there has been great support and faith from family and friends. And my health hasn't deteriorated. This is my collection of thoughts, of how I feel and what I am grateful for at thirty.
"Nwilo writes with a quiet and fiery validation of African Englishes, specifically a certain Nigerian English - how refreshing! This is exactly the sort of re-imaginative work that lovers of African fiction have been awaiting. A Tiny Place Called Happiness is a triumph for orature in literature everywhere!"
