Mfon Akpan from Lagos, Nigeria

I'm very impressed and excited at the acceptance and popularity of this book. Having had the opportunity to withness and share, casually, in the development of some the stories,its a marvel to withness this gust of talent and greatness as expressed by all who have read the book, and made their comments. Its a privilage to be part of this greatness and pray for a greater tomorrow.
