Abisola Biya, a fast rising and upcoming writer has unveiled a new book titled life Lessons…….My Path to Happiness.
The book was published under the Origami imprint of parresia Press Nigeria in March 2018 and the publication was presented at the Protea Hotel Victoria Island, Lagos on tn the 24th of March 2018.
According to a review, it is a timely expression of Nigeria’s socio-economic reality, with viable advice on how to counter the demons of contemporary society and achieve all-round intelligence.
The reviewer adds, “It is not a coincidence that Abisola Biya’s book has come at a very delicate stage of our national lives. This motivational cum resource book is timely and has come to address private and public issues as it plunges deep into the depths of our collective humanity thereby revealing the author’s social vision. Her impeccable use of English in a simple but not simplistic manner makes her language accessible even to the average reader.
“The title of the book, Life Lessons… My Path to Happiness, sounds autobiographical but is indeed Biya’s way of transferring its ownership and its content to the reader, saying so to speak that the reader should possess not only the book but also its content as a guide and handbook through life’s often bitter and sometimes sweet journey.
“Life Lessons… My Path to Happiness possesses a certain quality of inter-textuality and textual hybridity in its union of facts and fiction. Fiction because the author creates relatable scenarios in an attempt to make connectives and appeal to logic; facts because she borrows from the experiences of real life people, including herself, to enrich her narrative. So, the author weaves experience and fantasy and this singular quality makes the work true to life and, as such, capable of sustaining the interest of the reader.”
