‘In the first minute following her death, Tequila Leila’s consciousness began to ebb, slowly and steadily, like a tide receding from the shore…’
For Leila, each minute after her death recalls a sensuous memory: spiced goat stew, sacrificed by her father to celebrate the birth of a yearned-for son; bubbling vats of lemon and sugar to wax women’s legs while men are at prayer; the cardamom coffee she shares with a handsome student in the brothel where she works. Each fading memory brings back the friends she made in her bittersweet life – friends who are now desperately trying to find her . . .

1984 By George OrwellKShs1,495.00Add to cart
Regarded as a great instance of twentieth century English Literature, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four was first published in the summer of 1949, and set in Oceania—one of the three intercontinental superstates.
In this novel, Orwell presents a powerful critique of the times through the fictional global war among the super powers of Oceania that had divided the whole world. Orwell creates a convincing and haunting imaginary world steeped into political ravages and dis-organization. His masterful critique of the political structures of the times comes out through the life of Winston Smith, a man caught in the web of a dystopian future, and his covert affair with Julia, a woman he meets during his service at a Government post.
Brilliantly woven with a genial Orwellian spark, this novel is a classic satirical take on the political and social structures of all times.

In this fascinating book, a political analyst takes a close look at 21 key speeches which have shaped the world today. He examines the power of the arguments embedded in these speeches to inspire people to achieve great things, or do great harm, and he draws upon his political expertise to explain how our current understanding of the world is rooted in pivotal moments of history. These moments are captured in the words of a range of influential speakers including: Emmeline Pankhurst, Martin Luther King, Jr., Enoch Powell, Napoleon Beazley, Kevin Rudd, Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, Osama bin Laden, Margaret Beckett, Winston Churchill, Salvador Allende, Margaret Thatcher, Tony Blair, Tim Collins, Mohandas Gandhi, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Robin Cook, and Barack Obama. The speeches in this book are arranged thematically, linked by concepts such as “might is right,” “with us or against us,” and “give peace a chance.” Each transcript is accompanied by an insightful commentary that analyzes how the words relate to contemporary society.

488 Rules for Life by Kitty FlanaganKShs1,150.00Add to cart
488 Rules for Life is Kitty Flanagan’s way of making the world a more pleasant place to live.
Providing you with the antidote to every annoying little thing, these rules are not made to be broken. 488 Rules for Life is not a self-help book, because it’s not you who needs help, it’s other people. Whether they’re walking and texting, asphyxiating you on public transport with their noxious perfume cloud, or leaving one useless square of toilet paper on the roll, a lot of people just don’t know the rules.
But thanks to Kitty Flanagan’s comprehensive guide to modern behaviour, our world will soon be a much better place. A place where people don’t ruin the fruit salad by putting banana in it … where your co-workers respect your olfactory system and don’t reheat their fish curry in the office microwave … where middle aged men don’t have ponytails …
Other rules to live by include:
1. Men must wear shorts over leggings
The gym is no place for people to discover whether or not you are circumcised. That’s a private discussion for another place and time.
2. Team bonding activities should be optional
Some people love it when management decides that an afternoon of bowling or paintballing or (god forbid) karaoke will help everyone work better as a team. Others would rather be dead.
3. Don’t ever mention your ‘happy place’
To me, this sounds less like a pleasant, fun state of mind and more like some kind of utopian wank palace you’ve had built in the basement.
What started as a personal joke is now a quintessential reference book with the power to change society. (Or, at least, make it a bit less irritating.)
What people are (Kitty Flanagan is) saying about this book:
‘You’re welcome everyone.’
‘Thank god for me.’
‘I’d rather be sad and lonely, but right.’
‘There’s not actually 488 rules in here but it sure feels like it’.
5 Levels of Leadership: Proven Steps to Maximize Your Potential By John MaxwellKShs1,850.00Add to cart
Use this helpful book to learn about the leadership tools to fuel success, grow your team, and become the visionary you were meant to be.
True leadership isn’t a matter of having a certain job or title. In fact, being chosen for a position is only the first of the five levels every effective leader achieves. To become more than “the boss” people follow only because they are required to, you have to master the ability to invest in people and inspire them. To grow further in your role, you must achieve results and build a team that produces. You need to help people to develop their skills to become leaders in their own right. And if you have the skill and dedication, you can reach the pinnacle of leadership—where experience will allow you to extend your influence beyond your immediate reach and time for the benefit of others.
The 5 Levels of Leadership are:
1. Position—People follow because they have to.
2. Permission—People follow because they want to.
3. Production—People follow because of what you have done for the organization.
4. People Development—People follow because of what you have done for them personally.
5. Pinnacle—People follow because of who you are and what you represent.
Through humor, in-depth insight, and examples, internationally recognized leadership expert John C. Maxwell describes each of these stages of leadership. He shows you how to master each level and rise up to the next to become a more influential, respected, and successful leader.

SILAS NYANCHWANI MEMO: One of the most recurring problems in most marriages is the emotional withdrawal of wives and husbands who are ill-equipped at dealing with the menace. I see men in bars who don’t want to go home because their wives are unhappy or are presently serving them the coldest treatment they can cook in their hearts. Add to this, the most potent weapon women have at their disposal, used to punish errant husbands: silent treatment.
A Broken People’s Playlist By Chimeka GarricksKShs2,150.00Add to cart
A Broken People’s Playlist is a collection of short stories with underlying themes so beautifully woven that each story flows into the other seamlessly. From its poignant beginning in “Lost Stars” a story about love and it’s fleeting, transient nature to the gritty, raw musical prose encapsulated in “In The City”, a tale of survival set in the alleyways of the waterside. A Broken People’s Playlist is a mosaic of stories about living, loving and hurting through very familiar sounds, in very familiar ways and finding healing in the most unlikely places.
The stories are also part-homage and part-love letter to Port Harcourt (the city which most of them are set in). The prose is distinctive as it is concise and unapologetically Nigerian. And because the collection is infused with the magic of evocative storytelling, everyone is promised a story, a character, to move or haunt them.
