Billy Bisa’s Secrets and Other Stories is the first collection of short stories published by Dulue Mbachu. Eight in number, they were all written between the mid-1980s and the end of the 1990s.
A few of them previously appeared in West Africa and BBC Focus on Africa magazines as well as Amazon Shorts and a couple of anthologies. Most are being published for the first time this collection.
In his characteristic style, Mbachu employs humour to take readers through facts of life that should’ve otherwise made them sad. The stories represent a journey through a Nigeria seen through the eyes of the author. They present a potpourri of characters including musicians, magicians, policemen, the naive and the cunning, all coming together in a hilarious mix in the world according to Mbachu. The stories are as cathartic as they’re entertaining.
