The Day Ends Like Any Day - Timothy Ogene, book launch


In the slum they call The Blocks, growing up is a strange affair...Sam, a young Nigerian whose father only speaks to the children once he has taken on enough alcohol, and whose mother won't accept that Sam is different from his siblings, is formed by the people he meets, the gay young man he cannot rescue from his tormentors, the girl whose rapist escapes when the women of the block march to mete out justice on him; and Pa Suku, a strange figure who opens Sam's eyes to books and music, poetry and jazz. Then Sam goes to college and confronts his own sexuality, his own lack of belonging. The Day Ends Like Any Day is the lyrical, challenging account of the multiple lives of a young Nigerian who refuses to accept that he has been shaped by the traumas of his past.

Timothy Ogene was born and raised in Nigeria, but has since lived in Liberia, Germany, and the UK. His poems and stories have appeared in many magazines and journals. He is the author of Descent & Other Poems, and holds degrees from St. Edward's University and the University of Oxford and is currently a UEA Creative Writing student.
