    One of the greatest fears of the human species is being rendered homeless without a roof over our heads When backed up to a corner there's no predicting what a pre homeless person will do as evident in the shenanigans plotted and executed by the tenants of Wale the protagonist in The House My Father BuiltFrom the first few pages I glimpsed the end of the book but Adewale Maja Pearce AMP managed to keep me rooted in place until I finished the book in one day and two sittings Telltale signs of veteran storytellingI found the themes addressed in this book engaging particularly the return of Wale a result of biracial marriage raised in the diaspora to the Nigerian society His initial gullibility towards the dysfunctional Nigerian system and way of life was spun in a comic manner betimes I had to pause reading for a few moments of uncontrollable laughterThe dynamic of the relationship between character's Wale and Prince is something of interest as Prince goes against the common tropes of a sidekick to assume a superior role given Wale's lack of the brutish persona largely reuired to be functional in the Nigerian societyAMP's writing style is concise and devoid of prolix Suffused with concrete facts and possessed an unbiased point of view as he will often point openly to his errors and sometimes even lay ultimate blame on himselfA short read with a polychrome of interesting characters; this book is a masterpiece of African Literature
