Item description for Dreams Die at Twilight (Codesria Book Series) by Wale Okediran...
This is a heart-warming and humorous story about the lives of a group of young doctors and nurses in Lagos and the relationships that inevitably form amongst them. The author introduces an array of characters, all with foibles and idiosyncrasies, who entertain the reader and invite laughter; but sympathetically portrayed, they are all remarkable for their humanness. First there is Lamidi, an ugly doctor who was deformed by a polio attack, and a virgin, trying to get a girlfriend. His colleague and confidant, Jumi advises a make-over, a westernization of name (to Lemmy), and a direct approach. But Lemmy's forwardness with a nurse he is supposed to be tutoring - a 'touch-me-not' girl - soon results in scandal, as the nurses join in solidarity against him - even the promiscuous ones. Then there is Agnes, a Lagos socialite, who beside her steady boyfriend has affairs with businessmen and politicians in town, and keeps a doctor on the side to help along her studies. Agnes shocks everyone by getting together with Lemmy though it remains to be seen what lies ahead for them.
