New Library Highlight: Nigerian civil servants’ personal memoirs

Cover living the dream

What is it like to be a civil servant in Nigeria? Among the books collected during the ASCL library’s acquisition trip of last year to Nigeria are some (auto)biographical documents about working in the Nigerian civil service. They draw a picture not only of the civil service, but also of the political, economic and home circumstances of the times described.Two of them, Memoirs of mixed blessings (2009) and Living the dream (2015), are the focus of our latest Library Highlight.
