Looking for Transwonderland : Travels in Nigeria, Paperback / softback Book

Looking for Transwonderland : Travels in Nigeria Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

Noo Saro-Wiwa was brought up in England but spent her childhood summers in Nigeria - a country she considered an unglamorous parallel universe, devoid of all creature comforts.

After her father, activist Ken Saro-Wiwa, was murdered there in 1995, Noo rarely returned to the land of her birth.

More than a decade later, she decided to come to terms with Nigeria.

From the exuberant chaos of Lagos, to the calm beauty of the eastern mountains; the eccentricity of a Nigerian dog show to the empty Transwonderland Amusement Park, Noo combines travelogue with an exploration of corruption, identity and religion.

Looking for Transwonderland is the first major non-fiction narrative of modern Nigeria; an engaging portrait of a country whose beauty and variety few of us will experience, depicted with wit and insight by a refreshing new voice in contemporary travel writing.
