Nights of the Creaking Bed



4 in stock

Nights of the Creaking Bed is full of colourful characters involved in affecting dramas: a girl who is rejected in love because she has three brothers to look after; a middle-aged housewife who finds love again but has an impossible decision to make; a young man who can’t get the image of his naked, beautiful mother out of his mind; a child so poor he has to hawk onions on Christmas day – and many others. Some, initially full of hope, find their lives blighted by the cruelty of others, or by being in the wrong place at the wrong time, or by just not knowing the “right” people.

Corruption, religious intolerance, gratuitous violence, the irresponsible attitudes of some men to their offspring and the importance of joy are some of the big themes that underlie this memorable collection.

    Interesting and captivating..! it does not only portray the Nigerian culture and choices we make in our daily lives, it also expresses it in ways that helps you understand those choices; selfish and all.
    The book is worth every turn, every ink. If you are looking for a book that can get you hooked and wishing the story never finishes..? then Toni Kan’s night of the creaking bed is the read for you.
