Mike Effa Releases Latest Novel Through Copyhouse Press
Rising Nigerian Talent Releases "The Mysterious Liver" through New "Imaginarium" Imprint
Set in a remote village, "The Mysterious Liver" is an unusual, unsettling and unforgettable journey into the fabric of a society on the outermost fringes of civilisation.
His latest release has already been featured in some of Nigeria's leading online news outlets. "The Eagle Online" - one of the top online news services in Anglophone Africa - covered the story of the book's release, saying that:
"Effa is a noted author in Nigeria. “The Mysterious Liver” is a strong slice of ethno-fiction – infused with the vibrancy of the emerging Nigerian fiction scene and delivered in the assured nuanced tones of one of that scene’s primary voices. It boasts everything from human tragedy to sociological satire, and cloaks itself throughout in a visceral suspense/horror veneer but has much, much more to say than just splattering of gore. It is a quirky masterpiece and a worthy introduction to one of the most dynamic emerging English-language literary markets in Africa" (The Eagle Online, 27/02/2016)
