Happy New Month, and Ash Wednesday! March is here at last. 🙂 At the time I wrote this story, I had no idea what an epistolary short story or novel was. But as it turned out, that was precisely what I had written.
For our purpose, epistolary means “written in the form of a series of letters” e.g an epistolary novel. So, what makes this an epistolary short story? It’s written in the form of a series of letters.
Dear Obajimi is a short story comprised of letters written by a distraught wife to her missing husband. I’ll let the synopsis say the rest:
After the mysterious disappearance of her husband, a woman writes a series of letters in a desperate attempt to make sense of the calamity of a missing spouse. These letters provide insight into the life the couple lived before Obajimi’s disappearance and the hurricane of changes that occur while the Police investigate. By the last letter, will she discover what happened to her husband?
The Mysterious Disappearance of Obajimi was the “second runner up” in the bid for titles for this short story. I prefer the current title though. It seems more apt.
So, who is Obajimi and why do we care (or not) about him? See, that’s what you’ll have to read the story to discover. Speaking of which …
