Expats in Nigeria

Keith Fisher

Expats in Nigeria is an unusual collection of short stories inspired by Keith Fisher's experiences when living and working in Africa during the 1970s and 1980s. He introduces us to many colourful characters and recounts events that are both touching and humorous and which give us a taste of post-colonial Nigeria.
This collection is an important glimpse into the social history of the British in Nigeria during those years, and we learn a great deal through Keith's telling of the anecdotes and real-life stories of the people who lived there.
Keith developed his interest in short stories having listened to his Uncle Percy, who was a great storyteller.

He was born in 1940 in Birmingham during the bombing. He grew up in Birmingham and, after passing the eleven-plus, went to grammar school in Smethwick.
After leaving grammar school, he went to work in a couple of laboratories and did his degree in chemistry part-time. He then went to Canada to start his postgraduate degree, which he finished at the University of London in England.
After gaining his PhD, he went to America for five years and had several teaching appointments at universities. After returning to the UK he took up a post at the University of Lagos, later followed by a post at the University of Khartoum in the Sudan. Thirteen years in Africa were followed by two years in Canada and finally, in 1989, he came to Australia.
