"The Combat", published in 1972, unforgettably recounts the torn friendship between two contenders over the paternity rights of the child of a market girl, now a sophisticated businesswoman. A poignant memorial to the Biafran Civil War, it is also a vigorous and hilarious satire of the power-hungry manipulations of the largest black nation on earth, together with its South African intriguers.
