Imagination’s Many Rooms is a well-crafted collection of bristling essays on different but related subjects. Partly socio-political and literary commentary, partly a young poet’s reminiscences and encounters with global literary and cultural icons, the individual pieces are thematically grouped into sections in an organic anthology. It is written in a highly arresting style, with two of the pieces being essayistic conversations with a dead Canadian writer and a dead Nigerian scholar-poet respectively.

These essays first appeared in the Maple Tree Literary Supplement (MTLS) literary journal in slightly different forms as editorials for specific editions of the Ezine. The essay, “The Example of Mandela” is anthologized as “The Peaceful “Trouble!” in Mandela: Tributes to a Global Icon (Falola 2014).
