Bookvine Publishers Release Book Trailer, Cover for Seun Salami’s ‘Sex Life’ Collection
Bookvine Publishers have released the official trailer and book cover for the latest collection of short stories by Nigerian writer, ‘Seun Salami, titled ‘The Sex Life of a Lagos Mad Woman’.
According to Moyo Larmie, Copy Editor at Bookvine and Project Manager for the release, “as sophomore books go, the ‘Sex Life Collection’ out onnext Monday (13.10.14) is a brave, completely different proposition from The Son of Your Father’s Concubine, his first work.”
On the title of the new book, Larmie said the collection is being referred to as a ‘Sex Life Collection’ although it is officially titled ‘The Sex Life of a Lagos Mad Woman’, because it contains twelve fiction stories largely about the sex lives of characters like a celibate priest, a ritualist’s apprentice, a born-again Pentecostal sister, a popular charismatic pastor, a lesbian on the prowl and others whose diverse sexual experiences ‘Seun vividly portrays with his trademark simple yet suspense-filled prose style.
“The title story, ‘The Sex Life of a Lagos Mad Woman’ is the complete five thousand words version of one of the author’s most popular stories previously published on various online platforms. The story describes the secret sex life of a supposedly mad woman which eventually leads to her pregnancy and more consequences,” she said.
Our Pastor is Hooked on Porn and Me is the story of a celebrated charismatic preacher’s addiction to pornography and the resultant illicit affair with his secretary. In Pentecostal Sabina, the author describes the dilemma of a born-again sister who is betrothed to the choir master of her church in a strictly monitored courtship while also being secretly in love with a supposed unbeliever.
In Flight Partner, a Nigerian lady is heading back to Houston after visiting her family in Nigeria for the first time since leaving for University in America. Amidst thinking about her mother’s request to find a husband before her next visit, she meets a lady on the check-in queue who is in a similar situation, however, she seems to be in need of a different kind of partner.
Other compelling stories in the collection include ‘The Merchant’s Dungeon’, ‘Witch-hunting Nights’, ‘Breadwinners’ and five other compelling stories written in a bold, direct and thought-provoking style.
‘Seun Salami has been described as “one of Nigeria’s best new writers” by popular blogger and social commentator, Japheth Omojuwa, while award-winning motivational speaker and Author of ‘Mr Fantastic’, Fela Durotoye describes Salami as “a genius and master story-teller.”
