By Isidore Emeka Uzoatu
In Vision Impossible Isidore Emeka Uzoatu captures the climate of fear that envelops an African nation in the iron grip of military dictatorship. Junior Obodo, on the wings of love and fresh out of university, takes the battle to the junta with the one weapon it seemed to detest most: the pen. Of course, like all suspected of standing in the way, Junior is crushed. Or not quite. There is a sublime touch to Uzoatu’s prose as the story soars with its hero
beyond the stratosphere, transcending mortal existence to outline a new vision of a better society. It is a powerful allegory of the Nigerian condition.
