Inferno of Silence

Short stories are an ADHD kids’ dream. I can’t count the amount of times I had to read a book in school and I didn’t finish it. How I passed English class I will never know. But if I had to take a test over theses 7 short stories, I would pass it (I read them all).

Tolu’ A. Akinyemi, I want to take this opportunity to thank you for trusting me with your works and thank you for allowing me to read such powerful stories. Akinyemi’s history of award winning poetry allows his stories to flow with grace and elegance, that few authors can accomplish.

Full of heart, trials and tribulations, and so much reality. Akinyemi shines a light on the day-to-day interactions that people have all over the world, through the stories of his culture and his people.

Before I read any of Akinyemi’s stories I knew very little of Nigeria or of it’s culture. The closest I ever got to Nigeria was dating an Ethiopian girl in college; so not close at all. After reading the stories I became more knowledgeable of Nigeria’s people, food, culture, clothing, and so much more.

You can take my word for how great Akinyemi’s writing is, or you can just get yourself your own copy of and truly immerse you self into Akinyemi’s work and passion.
