This book’s name can be translated as the mysteries of God, written by prolific writer David Fagunwa.
David O. Fagunwa is the writer of the first full-length novel in Yoruba language. Fagunwa’s works characteristically take the form of loosely constructed picaresque fairy tales containing many folklore elements: spirits, monsters, gods, magic, and witchcraft.
In his book he assembles Yoruba folktales and weaves them together to form a composite narrative, while preaching ‘high morals’ from Yoruba cultural perspective as well as Christian ethos. In this work he takes cognizance of the fact that real social and political power has shifted from Obas or traditional chiefs to the colonialists.
This is a landmark book that should not be missed out on.
