The book is big – a little over 700 pages. But it’s in no way scary. If you love excellent, descriptive, and thrilling prose, you will definitely love this book. Every page and every chapter is filled with daring, investigative reportage – the type with the capacity to generate envious applause or deadly repercussions; or both.
Surely, this is a book of reading. The size notwithstanding, it is a piece of appetising literary cake. Audacious Journalism, a compilation of timeless writings by Anietie Usen, has been long time coming. It covers and brings to remembrance the 80s’ crucial issues from the local communities of Akwa Ibom State in southern Nigeria, to matters of national importance in the Nigerian nation.
Anietie…is exemplary. The sky is his limit.
DELE GIWA,Founding Editor-in-Chief of Newswatch Magazine.
Anietie seems to have a knack for winning awards, From winning the 1983 Best Youth Corper Award, as an NYSC member in Kano State Government House… to the Newswatch Editor-in-Chief Award for his story, Right Name, Wrong Person and the UAC 1989 Merit Award In Journalism, which guaranteed him an overseas scholarship…
Anietie holds a phenomenal record.
