ity of Memories, a debut novel by Richard Ali, follows Faruk Ibrahim, his father, his lover and her mother as they negotiate peculiar Nigerian traumas. Towering above them is the story of Ummi al-Qassim, a princess of Bolewa, and the feud, madness and death that attend her first love affairs. All four are bracketed by the modern city of Jos in central Nigeria, where political supremacy and perverse parental love become motives for ethno-religious crisis designed to destroy the Nigerian State."(City of Memories) is an epic journey about identity, political and religious affiliations and above all, mistrust."- Alison Locke, author of Maysun and the Wingfish."(City of Memories) is a fine attempt to witness and step up to collective memory. It is as much about a triumphant love affair as it is about a nation at the brink of collapse." - Emmanuel Iduma, publisher, Saraba Magazine."(City of Memories) tackles the big question of what love really means, set during the time of religious and ethnic upheavals in Northern-Central Nigeria. A beautiful book of self-discovery by a young author to watch."- A. M. Bakalar, author of Madame Mephisto.
