Though Fran has been writing over the years, “Ilamina, My Sister” is her first published work.
“Tarri and his friend, Dokugbo, are already dissatisfied with life in their community,” shares Anyansi. “It is an endless tale of woe, suffering, poverty, deprivation, degradation, and unfulfilled promises by the federal government and local politicians.
“All this strife and frustration experienced by Tarri and Dokugbo eventually result in calamities in their families, starting with Ilamina, Tarri’s sister, a young and beautiful teenager, a victim of the deprivation and degradation. This had a rippling effect, which brings about pain and sorrow not just to Tarri and Dokugbo but to the entire community of Tumbila.
“This is a story of the Niger Delta struggle where the economy of the country is sustained by the oil obtained from the Niger Delta; and yet the people still suffer degradation, deprivation, and injustice.
“So what’s the benefit of the oil?”
