,,Oil on Water,”a look into the tragic story of the Niger Delta
Oil and Water by Helon Habila is a book that chronicles the story of two journalists, one young and full of life, the other older and more sceptical.
Their story begins as they search for a kidnapped white woman in the heart of the Niger Delta islands.
As the two journey in this conflict ridden area of Nigeria, they realise just how dangerous the whole trip is and they find themselves redefining the search itself.
An unforgettable read, Oil on Water demystifies the Niger Delta as not only a place of great conflict and oil but a place that people hold dear, where things connect in the harshness of it all and where answers to nagging questions can be realised.
