Ikhide Ikheloa reviews Richard Ali’s City of Memories

Ikhide with City of Memories at Victor Ekpuk’s Washington Art Exhibition

“With City of Memories, Richard Ali has established himself as perhaps the most important Nigerian writer at home or in the Diaspora writing about Nigeria from a Northern perspective, bar none. We have not had a Nigerian write about the North with such passion and intellect as Ali. Not since Cyprian Ekwensi.  Ali demonstrates a good mastery of prose, employing nuanced turns of phrases.”
