"The Incredible Dreams of Garba Dakaskus will enchant and delight. You have never read anything like this. A triumph of fantastical inventiveness."

Abubakar Adam Ibrahim

The Incredible Dreams of Garba Dakaskus is a philosophical quest through time in search of a book with obscure origins which might contain the secrets of the alphabet and offer the reader a divine glimpse behind the veil that shrouds our plane of existence. It is the story of a narrator, whose journey is delicately interwoven with innumerable characters and stories from across time and place, on an existential search for the meaning of life, the universe, and the essence of what it means to be a living being.

It draws inspiration from multiple deep sources, seeming in parts like being in the middle of the famous One Thousand and One Nights or in Jorge Luis Borges The Library of Babel or Abubakar Imam's Magana Jari Ce, but it is a universe of its own, an unforgettable creation straining with passion for the purity of things, the soul of literature, the nature of man and the meaning of life.

Umar Abubakar Sidis debut novel is wildly ambitious, big-hearted, and unapologetically strange. It is a true banquet for the mind and intellect.

"Reminiscent of the brilliance of Italo Calvino's writing, Sidi's novel makes a fascinating read. It is both a storytelling marvel and an ingenious idea."
