It’s been several months of excitement working with Premium Times Books on Professor Pius Adesanmi’s new book. It’s a charm of a book, every single page of it. The cover was designed by the amazing visual artist Victor Ehikhamenor (VEE Global Ltd, Lagos).
Naija No Dey Carry Last by Professor Pius Adesanmi gathers his most important reflections on Nigeria over the last decade, mostly published in his Premium Times, Sahara Reporters and Nigerian Village Square columns. Naija No Dey Carry Last is a tribute and an argument for the place of memory in Nigeria’s socio-politics.
Adesanmi has over the last twenty years established his stature as one of Africa’s leading academics and was one of the first to use social media as a new classroom in which to test out his ideas and engage with our country. Educated at the Universities of Ilorin, Ibadan and British Columbia, Pius Adesanmi, who is presently a Professor of English and African Studies at Carleton University in Canada, has won numerous awards including the inaugural Penguin Prize for African Writing in 2010.
Naija No Dey Carry Last will be out in bookstores late September. It will be available everywhere–bookstores, via the Parresia website, via Amazon’s bookstore, the Kindle store, everywhere. We will keep everyone posted. Meantime, please follow our social media handles.
