Dr Grace Anderson’s Novels

Dizzy Angel, (1985),  my first novel, won several Awards in Nigeria.

It is about an Ogbanje or Abikun child who, according to Nigerian Tradition, was born to die and then reincarnate and then die again. Hers would be a cycle of coming and going, until something happens to stop her in her tracks.  But what could that be? 

Dizzy Angel also tackles the discrimination against the female population, as well as other superstitions that were rife in the Nigerian society at that time.
