The fascinating aspects of Akinwumi Isola’s verbal dexterity and panache

This is a slightly revised excerpt from the Foreword to one of Professor Akinwumi Isola’s books, A Treasury of Childhood Memories, that was published in 2016 By Biodun Jeyifo The writer of this “treasury of childhood memories”, Akinwumi Isola, is one of the best storytellers, or fabulists, or spinners of exquisite yarns I have met in my life. By this assertion, I do not refer only to his vast corpus of published plays, novels, novelettes, film scripts and tall tales. More extensively or inclusively, I refer also to the experience of hearing him verbally deliver his stories in the company of his close circle of friends, among whom I count myself to be one.
