A Case of Four Pillows (Paperback)
In a West African university campus, a battle of wit and love is at the center stage of interaction and academic growth for students in the English Honours class. Propelled by a professor's liberal approach to learning, students are challenged to take their destinies into their own hands. A Case of Four Pillows is a romantic drama centered around four lovers in an intricate mesh of destiny over desire and a twisted bend in the curves of human affairs on the anvil of real life experience. "Gbanabom-Hallowell is able to spin out a play that is laden with poetic lines...a splash of...fitting allusions... he is able to deploy contrast in order to play out the action for all to see." Abdulai Walon-Jalloh, author of the play, Hungry Vultures.
