An excerpt from Imagonna: Peace Corps Memories, which should be available in a month or so.
I don’t know if the war killed or wounded any of my students and friends among the teaching staff at Abbot. And school carpenter Augustine Okemadu and our cook Emanuel Obiako Anyaduigwu and Margaret who lovingly cared for our baby daughter, did they live through the war? I wonder if the brilliant Edwin Igbozurike and exceptional athlete Johnny Ikegwounu made it. And Henry Martyns and Anthony Ejekwu and Peter Okeke who named this book and all the others on my track team and the children next door? And what happened to my good friends and fellow teachers at Abbot– John Okorie Nwosu, Amaraegbu Assic Olumba, Adolphus Amakamara, and their families I was privileged to visit? Are any of those I loved so dearly, alive now?
