Sunshine Book Club: Nikę Campbell Fatoki – ‘Bury me Come Sunday Afternoon’ [August, 2016]
The book was published in 2016 by Quramo Publishing.
Here’s a breakdown of the book:
"In this short story collection, Nike Campbell-Fatoki filters the lives of contemporary Nigerians through a colourful and vivid prism, where past sins come to upset settled lives, where lost lives fuel a campaign for a better future and nothing is as it seems.
She explores well-known themes but delves a little deeper, questioning 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."
Campbell Fatoki was born in Lvov, Ukraine. Her debut novel Thread of Gold Beads was published in 2013.
“Bury me Come Sunday Afternoon” is available in the following book shops in Lagos Nigeria:
