Bury Me Come Sunday Afternoon

by Nike Campbell-Fatoki

In this short story collection Nike Campbell-Fatoki filters the life of contemporary Nigerians through a colorful and vivid prism, where past sins come to upset settled lives(Bury Me Come Sunday Afternoon), where lost lives fuel a campaign for a better future (The Hunchback) and nothing is as it seems (The Appointment). She explores welll known themes but delves a little deeper so as to question our ideas about people, our impressions and prejudices. Bury Me Come Sunday Afternoon  depicts the struggles of a young ambitious and hardworking Nigerian abroad with the same insightful candour as it does the tale of a brilliant but broken woman struggling with mental illness. Her language is precise and direct, her characters are sharply observant and self-aware even as they battle odds that stack against them. Morals are explored but there is no judgement even when characters take vengeful and extreme actions. Heroes are created in unlikely scenarios and life as we know it, with more than one surprising twist, unfolds in the pages.
