  1. I Do Not Come to You by Chance by Adaobi Tricia Nwaubani and Night Must Wait by Robin Winter are two excellent books. The first deals with the 419 scams and the second with the Biafrian war.

  2. Many thanks for your valuable insights into fiction and development. Generally, fiction reading helps us to become more empathetic – a key to successful development practice.
    My wife and I were Peace Corps Volunteers in Brazil, later served seven years as community organizers for the Catholic Church land commission in the Amazon; I subsequently directed Catholic Relief Services in Brazil and a USAID program. I am also a literary writer, and some of our experiences are captured in short story collection, A Hero for the People, published by Press 53 (a highly respected literary press in North Carolina) – the book won the 2014 Catholic Arts & Letters Award. http://www.press53.com/BioArthurPowers.html – also available for 99 cents on Amazon Kindle – https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?url=search-alias%3Dstripbooks&field-keywords=a+hero+for+the+people+arthur+powers
