Books Info:

Pandora's Box free pdf "You think England is hard? Compared to Nigeria? My dear, you haven't seen anything yet!' On holiday with her streetwise son in Lagos, a British-Nigerian mother is in turmoil. Should she leave her only child in a strict Lagos boarding school, or return him to the battlefi elds of inner London? 'What do you see out of that window? People, right? Just people. Because there are no 'Black' people in Africa. Let him experience that for a change.' A family spanning three generations and two continents meet in Lagos for the first time in over thirty years. But the joy of reunion also unleashes long-suppressed truths. An exuberant and thought-provoking mix of comedy, tragedy and family drama, Pandora's Box reveals the heartbreak behind the diffi cult choices some parents must make - and the price their children pay"
