Chief the Honourable M A Nanga, MP, left his job as a teacher to become a politician. As Minister for Culture, he is "a man of the people". At first, the contrast between Nanga and Odili, a former pupil who is visiting the Ministry, appears huge. But Odili's idealism soon collides with his lusts, and the two men's personal and political taunting threaten to send their country spinning into chaos.

It was a good book but took me a little while to get into it. It started off slow but was worth reading by the end. If you choose to, there is a lot of analyzing to be done about the book or you can just read it for entertainment. Either way, I would recommend this book to a friend.
