She Was Foolish? by Ifedinma Dimbo
To jump-start the dream of living a luxury, jet-set lifestyle, Nigerian university student
Gift, in a business arrangement with her husband, leaves their two children to travel to
Italy to become a prostitute.
Her decision plunges Gift into a dramatic world of hard choices eventually leading her
to Ireland to confront her past.
She was Foolish? attempts to explore the depths of the contemporary 'get rich quick
syndrome' using themes of love, betrayal and triumph, presented in an accessible,
moving, and uplifting way.
"Creates a cosmic vision not bound by nation or tongue, by the simple beauties of being
human. The prose is euphonic as it combines human stories, manmade places, natural
vistas, and multiple dialects. An elegant masterpiece."
