Mr. Happy And The Hammer of God is a significant addition to the genre of the short story in contemporary Ghanaian and African literature. Egblewobge is an emerging talent and if his title seems surreal, his stories are no less so and are unburdened by the African condition representing universal themes. Collectively, this book is a portrayal of inner struggles, torments and the psyche. The author explores different aspects of reality – who and what we are and where we go from here. The stories are sly and ingenious and readers will discover a fresh new voice in this powerful collection. Mr. Happy… raises the bar for emerging talent from Ghana.
