With her second novel Angri, Priscillia M. Manjoh fashions a contemporary narrative style that, not unlike Voltaire’s satirical eighteenth-century ‘Candide: Or Optimism’, straddles tonalities of epic and realist literature—a style she calls ‘faction’, a mix of fact and fiction. Moving through the landscape of her troubled, and traumatised country in Africa, the protagonist, Joey Muki, tries to make sense of division, disaster and atrocity, all the while working towards encouraging emerging solidarities, addressing justice and responsibility. Amidst the debris of armed insurrection, violence, and arrogance, Angri is about the will of women to act on their political cultures and social livelihoods.
