Happy Publication Day to The Whispering Trees by Abubakar Adam Ibrahim!

 

The Whispering Trees blends the magical with the mundane in this spellbinding collection of short stories. 

These magical tales capture the essence of life, death and coincidence in Northern Nigeria. Myth and reality intertwine in stories featuring political agitators, newly-wedded widows, and the tormented whirlwind, Kyakkyawa. The two medicine men of Mazade battle against their egos, an epidemic and an enigmatic witch. And who is Okhiwo, whose arrival is heralded by a pair of little white butterflies?
