I enjoy intelligent people, and I enjoy intelligent writers even more; but most of all, I enjoy intelligent writers with a great sense of humour. And that’s why I enjoy The Dark Corner! Elnathan John makes me laugh, and laugh, and laugh, all the while teaching me important things I need to know (and others I do not need to know!” He also writes serious, thought-provoking articles.
Elnathan is an amazing writer. We’ve been telling him o, he’s been forming “I just dey try” but when he was nominated for the Caine Prize, he finally stopped trying to deny it.
Everybody knows that my favourite series on his blog is the How To series which he since concluded. The satirical commentary series includes posts like How to Participate in the Destruction of Nigeria, How To Behave Like a Car Owner, How to be a Nigerian Mechanic, etc. In fact, I want to use this medium to ask you guys to remind him that he promised us a “How To” book. Thank you.
If you’re a Nigerian, you have to read every single one of those! You just have to!

I didn’t know you’ve been blogging for a long time?! I really don’t like blogs because almost all of them include very long gists that scare away snail pace readers like me. But I like the length of this particular post on your blog, thing is, I have never heard of this Elnathan you talk about. Also, your blog reminds me of Adichie’s “Americanah.” I will visit again though! 😉
Really? I have 🙂 I made the decision to try short posts recently, still testing it. I’m surprised you’ve never heard of him! Read his blog, you’ll like it. Americanah ke? Lol, that’s only because the heroine was a blogger 😀
