Different kinds of same is a gripping and emotional story of two young love birds, Kenny and Kemi, who allow their emotions get the better of them despite the warning signs and plunge headlong into a union whose incompatibility is written in their genes.
Their sin was loving, and the punishment is rife. Old sins come home to roost as their marriage is hit from both sides by the fruits of their union; Ade, a decent lovable Sickle Cell sufferer. And Edward, their delinquent son who turns out a rebel and leaves a trail of destruction, intensely hating his brother’s health status.
In this tale, Anthony weaves a rich tapestry that depicts action, consequences, and the pain that comes to both the people living with Sickle Cell Anaemia and the ones they love. The story is a rollercoaster of emotions with a clear message on the need for responsible parenthood and an advocacy to end the stigmatization of those with the disorder.
This book is available now at Terra Kulture Bookshop and other Known bookstores in Lagos. Coming soon on Jumai and Konga.
