Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Brain Surgery on the Highway & Other Manic Expressions is collection of eleven stories holding a satirical mirror to contemporary Nigerian and British life. In the title story, an itinerant medicine seller tries to separate passengers in a Molue bus from their money. In other parts of the book, a manic millionaire and a schizophrenic advertisement executive attempt to explain away life with mathematical theories;a psychopathic writer is creating a deadly reality show that is not meant for television; and in the wilderness of Brixton an unemployed man contemplating a sojourn abroad is drawn into a grim glimpse into the pitiful life of immigrants. From the first to last page the book is filled with emotional disasters.
