Reader's Diary #1576- Laolu Poe Alani: Adéláìdé


Laolu Poe Alani's "Adéláìdé" may wear its philosophy and themes of ambition and obstacles on its sleeve, but it's also one of those short stories where a lack of subtlety seems the point.

Further, I loved the contrast of universal themes such as these with a pretty unique (i.e., Nigeria) setting. And the protagonist was compelling and likeable, even if a bit on the depressing side.
