Book Description

A character having multiple personality disorder decides to express herself. With six different personalities in her head vying for the spotlight, a constant battle occurs as the book progresses. 

The sagacious one starts with her wise stories, in her usual mature style. As the bitter one, the melancholic one and others take over, more heart wrenching issues are exposed, and the reality of the world we live in comes to play. Each character invites you to her world, to experience what they are experiencing in their own unique way. 

The book starts with a story about corruption in Corruption Noni, where the writer had the opportunity to interview corruption and then progresses to really deep stories that touch
prostitution, religious hypocrisy, marital pressures, and other societal ills. Each story portrays a reality that you can relate with. 

At the end, the comic one ends up defeats all and is victorious with her funny stories, proving that no matter how twisted our reality is, there is always a reason to laugh in the end.

Book Review by Myne Whitman (Best Selling Author)

Atilola's world is one that most of us are familiar with. She lives and works in Nigeria. Yet, reading this book shows that the vistas of our minds can be very different. The versatile works that make up Antonyms of a Mirage, her first collection, prove just how similar and at the same time different we can be, in ways that are as entertaining as they are sometimes disturbing. It starts off with an encounter with Corruption as a fictional character, "corrupy" in Corruption Noni; and continues with the sprinkles of pop culture in the reference to Brangelina in The Same Cain. 

There are glimpses of Nigerian life on religiously noisy Akanni Street as well as in other hard-hitting and thought provoking rhymes and lines in the following poems including Because, Film Trick and Family Portrait. The thread of spotlighting vanity, hypocrisy and fake living continue in Letter to Undo, written to a younger more impressionable self, Prayer of Mediocrity; and In my Pocket featuring Chief Bangoshe, he with a huge slice of the national cake. 

As the writing moves through the Sagacious and Bitter, through to the Melancholic and Opinionated, other social issues are also addressed, including abortion, beggars, prostitution, and the pressure to get married in titles like Do you Know, Citizen of a Fallen World, Mrs Pressured, among others.

The collection ends on a more light-hearted note with a precocious child in This Parrot Girl and Blessing Gbeborun, the all-seeing gossip in a compound full of drama. It is also in this Comic section that Atilola reveals more of herself with an ode to her father who is Samson...Not, a persistent admirer, and the yuppy sugar-daddy.

Antonyms of a Mirage is certainly a book worth reading. Each article, poem or fiction piece offers a unique slice into the lived consciousness of Nigerians as observed by a myriad of characters including the author herself.
