Valley of memories: a review.

Frances Ogamba’s Valley of Memories begins with a very well crated line, “To live with another man’s wounds is to wake at midnights with a searing pain and listen to the man breathe and exist.” It’s a line that makes the reader think, “okay, how are you aware of this peculiar experience?” Which is well and good because this question is answered in this metaphysical piece of non-fiction. Frances however, does a lot more than tell a story of her connection with a late uncle, Okwueke, she does the greater work of centering an African understanding of what happens before human life and after death.
