Short Stories of Igoni Barrett Display Precision of Craft

Short Stories of Igoni Barrett Display Precision of Craft

Some good news. Igoni will be performing at Two Seasons Talking Trees on February 25. He will be a great addition to the programme. Igoni's newest writing displays a dedication to precision when writing about his views of contemporary, urban Nigeria.

His views will feel very familiar to West Indians such as the accidental humour on public signs in the story
Like Spilled Blood, which also brings home the impact that the UK premier league has on youth in Nigeria.
Dreamchaser goes into the mind of a young Internet truant.
I am Joy turns on a conversation between two lonely and frustrated people in an inexplicable moment.
Me is a moment of desperation for a writer who knows that you have to give all to your craft if you want to make a difference to your world.

The stories will be reproduced in coming issues of the Sunday Observer's Bookends.
