About this title


Winner of the 1995 Phi Kappa Phi Prize for Fiction, USC

" . . . One that puts a stone in a basket of eggs must walk ever so gently."

Abiku, a Yoruba work which means "born to die," is an allegorical satire couched within the complex and often convoluted environment of Nigeria's social, traditional and military cultures. It is more than a book about Yoruba mythological beliefs. It extends beyond a clash of modernity and traditional beliefs, treachery, deception, or savage display of brutality among members of Nigeria's military ruling class. It is all of these and more. Above all, it is an interwoven belief of religion and spirituality, about power and its vulnerability, about a misunderstood phenomenon that is universal in scope.

About the Author:

Debo Kotun was born in Lagos, Nigeria. He studied at Johns Hopkins University, Yale, the New School for Social Research, and the Masters of Professional Writing Program of the University of Southern California.
