Major Breakthrough In African Literature
Kennedy O Obohwemu



I am a 5th year medical student of Delta State University, Abraka. I would like to draw the attention of the
international community to the publication of the first full-length futuristic romantic suspense novel by a
writer of African origin.


'Every Time We Meet' is a 320-page novel based on the findings of an international research conducted eleven
years ago. The scientific survey was carried out in 65 nations in 1999-2001. In 2003 Nigerians were reported
to be the happiest people in the world following the results of that survey. The research was reported by one
of the world's top science magazines, New Scientist, and was picked up by a number of news outlets. The report
considered that the country's family life and culture were more important than its problems and material wealth
in determining happiness.


Over the years, Nigeria has recorded steady tremendous success in the international scene. Education, entertainment
(beauty pageantry, music, movies, etc), tourism and sports are some of the sectors making headlines. Nigeria also
has a rich literary history, and Nigerians have authored many influential works of post-colonial literature in the
English language.

'Every Time We Meet' appreciates the exploits recorded in recent years. It presents Nigeria to the international
community as a nation capable of far more than is projected. It delves into the ever fascinating world of modeling
and beauty pageants, and with a touch of class draws attention to Nollywood and the tourism potentials of the country.

To many outsiders Africa remains a complex conundrum, and a good number of our citizens out there are unwilling to
return home. This is largely due to reports often received from the media—civil wars, dictatorships, poverty, and all
the other favourite stereotypes of Africa in the press.

'Every Time We Meet' has its premise centered on a character that lived all his life abroad. Everything about him was
foreign: his ideas, his ideals, his fantasies! He believed in the American dream and he lived out that dream. America
made him who he was and he would always be grateful to America. The young man made exploits overseas, and he hardly
visited his own country.

This novel is a compelling story that captures the intensity of living, loving and creating a family in today’s world.
A richly textured material that astounds the imagination, 'Every Time We Meet' leaves you spell-bound and ultimately
makes your heart pound faster with each page.

The title and theme for this novel came from a song entitled Puzzle of my heart, written by the famous Irish pop group,
Westlife. The relevant lines are:

Every time we meet
The picture is complete;
Every time we touch
The feeling is too much…

The story captures the very essence of human relationship, the ability to sow a seed in the life of the person next to you.
It brings that bond to the center stage in a real life situation, and admits how incredibly complex and how conflicting the
images could be.

'Every Time We Meet' is authored by my humble self. Never in the history of the African continent has a novel of this
magnitude been authored by an undergraduate! It is arguably the first full-length futuristic romantic suspense
novel by a writer of African origin!


You can prove me wrong!

This is a major milestone, one that not only enters national reckoning but promises international renown. It is my sincerest
wish that the relevant authorities would recognise this and proudly associate with it.


Thank you.
