They say fiction is an extension of the factual. Niran Adedokun’s The Law is an Ass, features nine short stories that seem like fictional manifestations of the concerns in his second book, The Danfo Driver in All of Us. In this collection, Niran continues his jeremiad about Nigeria, with stories about sexual shenanigans (both real and imagined), corruption, poverty and deprivation as well as a heady cocktail of other problems that beset a third world country like Nigeria. These stories, told in simple but gripping prose, will hold you in thrall like the tale of the Ancient Mariner.
Toni Kan, author, The Carnivorous City

These stories have tricky plots, appearing simple and linear in design with seductive and elegant prose. Line after line, paragraph after paragraph, we grow to love the protagonists.
Jahman Anikulapo, former Arts Editor and Editor of The Guardian on Sunday

The author leads you from randomness to some unexpected cataclysmic event in his stories. One minute you are innocently traipsing through the gullies of life and the next thing, Nigeria happens to you. The stories are like short films, vivid and captivating.
Mildred Okwo, filmmaker and writer

Niran’s stories are populated by characters who are our neighbours, our friends, our colleagues and members of our family. He offers us an entertaining and educative read that is vivid, engaging and throbbing.
