I have got a sentimental attachment to this book as I consider it one of the best fictional works centred on the city in which I grew up. There are not that many books centred on the city, so allow me to revel in this one. The book is relatively old (it was published over a decade ago) and this was my first copy (see pic above). I recently saw a new print in the bookshop and swiftly got a new copy for myself.
In my view, our love for particular books is rarely objective. Our affinity to certain books like songs is usually subject to the emotions they evoke. These emotions could be merely based on our familiarity or close ties with the content or location of the work. There are few works of fiction set in Port Harcourt city.
