With an ever increasing number of young Africans diving into the unknown each year, in search of a better life abroad, Segun Adeniyi's From Frying Pan to Fire could not have come at a better time. Through their often heart-rending tales of woe, Adeniyi weaves a powerful and compelling narrative, made all the more intense by the poignant, personal account of one of these dream seekers, the author's own younger brother. From Frying Pan to Fire, brings to bear on a subject that has become a scourge of our time, well deserved attention as well as a sense of urgency. This slim but essential book is emotionally wrenching and powerfully affecting. It beams light on a shameful dimension of Nigeria's – nay Africa's – current reality, exposing the harrowing adventures undertaken by hordes of hapless youth who risk everything, including enslavement, brutal sexual exploitation, and the loss of their lives, in search of an increasingly illusory bliss in Europe or North America. The book should be required reading for those who run or ruin Africa – and for the rest of us, victims, enablers, or abettors of misrule. – Okey Ndibe, author of Never Look an American in the Eye (a memoir), Foreign gods, Inc. and Arrows of Rain.
