    Every day is for the thief but one day is for the owner, so they say.
    A young man returns to Nigeria after fifteen years in New York. 
    The country of his childhood has changed: it has found fast-food restaurants, email cafes, contempt for authority and the all-consuming draw of ‘money for nothing’.

    Petrol pumps overcharge and internet cafes overflow with scammers. Every Day is for the Thief is a candid tale of political and spiritual corruption, and a moving account of what it means to go home.
