Amina

Mohammed Umar

The moving story of a woman who challenges the restrictions of the life she is born into, and in so doing helps to bring about change for more than just herself. It illuminates issues which rarely appear in fiction but which structure the lives of millions of women - the legal status of Muslim women, the limitations imposed on them by traditional and religious conventions, the restrictions on their economic activities, the humiliations visited on them as a result of unquestioned male power in personal relationships. It engages the reader's sympathy through its believable portrayal of one remarkable contemporary woman. Written with the passion born of real experience, this remarkable portrayal through the eyes of a woman by a northern Nigerian man leaves the reader with hope for the future.

The Illegal Immigrant

Mohammed Umar

Who is Mustapha, a respected Nigerian journalist and an aspiring filmmaker or an illegal immigrant wanted by the Home Office? Is he even Mustapha, or is he Michael, Kimani, or any one of the other identities he takes on to survive? But this is not just Mustapha’s story. It is a social saga with a glittering array of memorable characters embodying the ethnic and cultural diversity of London. Samuel Selvon’s Lonely Londoners gave us the city from the perspective of Caribbean immigrants who arrived in the 1950s. Mohammed Umar’s The Illegal Immigrant not only gives us the African experience of the 1990s, but reveals a society knitted together from a tapestry of multiple brightly coloured strands: Africans from different parts of the continent, West Indians from different Caribbean islands, sub-continental Indians, Europeans, Iranians and many others. What they have in common is their quest for ‘another world, a new chapter, a new dawn and a new dream.’
