Urushi and Other Stories from Ososo
Publisher: Publiseer Publishing
'Urushi' literarily translates to 'fear' in the author's native Ososo dialect. This is a collection of short stories that explores the subject of fear and human frailty. With titles like 'Ebheshina' (dream), 'Shadow of Light', 'Enami Imu' (Christmas Goat), 'That Sunday Afternoon' and 'The Footpath', this book contains a whole lot of topics ranging from aging and death to fear, dreams, child abuse, rape and teenage pregnancy.
The story 'That Sunday Afternoon' won the maiden WordMaster challenge competition in 2015. All the other stories in this collection have been published in one form or the other, at different times, on different platforms, both locally and internationally.
