Thelma’s Stories: The Life Experiences of an Overcomer By Thelma Coleman Alex (HardCover)
Thelma's Stories: The Life Experiences of an Overcomer recounts the many experiences that Mrs. Thelma Coleman Alex faced as she grew up a child of America's Great Depression. They revisit the pain of being shuffled from house to house at the time, especially as her parents left home to find work to earn a living. As a young girl, she faced challenges of living in grinding poverty as well as experiencing humor, love and compassion even in the midst of frequent troubles. Collectively, the stories invariably give voice to experiences and thoughts of many from a time that is often not remembered by many in American history. Above all, these carefully woven and presented stories reflect God's provision and protection, which shaped young Thelma Coleman's life into a resilient, compassionate and educated woman, who loved the Lord with all her heart. As an octogenarian, Mrs. Thelma Coleman Alex, affectionately called Grandma Felma by her grandchildren, sees her three grandchildren - Kwadwo, Livingston and Livia - as the joys of her life, hence she happily dedicated the publication to the three of them

Treasury of Childhood Memories By Akinwumi Isola
"Childhood is the lost Eden that all adults recall with nostalgia, and in this collection of 13 scintillating stories, one of the finest living writers in the Yoruba language, Akinwumi Isola, plunges back into the archives of memory, and recreates for us some of the delightful episodes of that nirvana of his youth." "Told with his customary poetic skill and wit, his unmatched gift of the gab, his command of the opulent rhetorical resources of the Yorùbá language, the episodes sparkle like precious stones, telling of a time of innocence and of a world that, sadly, can no longer be retrieved." "Here therefore is a narration that is more than a fitting paean to friends that are no more, to a cohesive rural community that time has swallowed, to an ethos of communal living and sharing that modernity has erased. As we follow the adventures of these rumbustious young boys, relishing their triumphs and failures, sharing their pains and laughter, we come to recognize ourselves as we too once were, and we come to a better understanding now of the weaknesses and the strengths of our societies. So compelling indeed is Isola's evocative skill that these youthful escapades turn on to a mirror of the dreams and the longings that have brought us to where we are today, the flaws that undid us, and the virtues that strengthened us and might still redeem us." "We cannot thank Pamela Olúbùnmi Smith enough for her wonderful courage and her brilliant work of translation, in bringing these stories to readers in the English-speaking world."

Nollywood:The Creation of Nigerian Film Genres By Jonathan Haynes
Nigeria's Nollywood has rapidly grown into one of the world's largest film industries, radically altering media environments across Africa and in the diaspora. It has also become one of African culture's most consequential expressions, powerfully shaping how Africans see themselves and are seen by others. With this book, Jonathan Haynes provides an accessible and au­thoritative introduction to this vast industry and its film culture. Haynes describes the major Nigerian film genres and how they relate to Nigerian society—its values, desires, anxieties, and social tensions. He interprets these generic stories and the cast of mythic figures within them: the long-suffering wives, the business tricksters, the Bible-wielding pastors, the kings in their traditional regalia, the glamorous young professionals, the emigrants stranded in New York or London, and all the rest. Based on more than twenty years of research and with vivid descriptions of Nollywood's landmark films and leading directors, this is a book of unprecedented scope on a major branch of world cinema.
