In her startling collection of short stories, Broken Lives and Other Stories, Anthonia C. Kalu creates a series of memorable characters who struggle to hold displaced but dynamic communities together in a country that is at war with itself. Broken Lives and Other Stories presents a portrait of the ordinary women, children, and men whose lives have been battered by war in their homeland.

“Storytelling at its best, full of subtlety and a nuanced exploration of the core issues of the Biafran tragedy.”

Emmanuel Obiechina, Visiting Lecturer of Afro-American Studies, Harvard University
