Item description for Black Mustard Seed by Emeka Aniagolu...
An Igbo young man - Chike falls in love with a Yoruba young lady - Bisi; and a Hausa young man -Mohammed, falls in love with an Igbo young lady -Ngozi. They are modernists, but must contend with the traditional and religious absolutism of their parents, and the growing ethnic chauvinism and heated atmosphere of a post-colonial country pursuing money and prosperity. Through the eyes and lives of these four lovers, woven into a tale set in post-independence Wazobia (Nigeria), this novel confronts the big political question and obsession of the historical moment: the problematic process of transforming the Nigerian state into a modern nation. Under the colonialists things fell apart; ethnic conflict and civil war ensued.
