About the Book

Six Hundred Incisions is a collection of contemporary African short stories which make vivid satirical statements especially on the individual, social and religious lives of the people, young and old, as characterised by desperation, deception, fear of retributive justice, human failings and marital infidelity. Woven in simple everyday language, sometimes serious and at other times hilarious, the narratives are easy to grasp, the actions depict the reality of lives of the people, the characters are commonplace and the setting is familiar.
