      Onitsha Market Literature consists of stories, plays, advice and moral
      discourses published primarily in the 1960s by local presses in the lively
      market town of Onitsha, an important commercial site in the Igbo-speaking
      region of southeastern Nigeria. In the fresh and vigorous genre of Onitsha
      Market Literature, the commoner wrote pulp fiction and didactic handbooks
      for those who perused the bookstalls of Onitsha Market, one of Africa's
      largest trading centers.

      Twenty-one pamphlets from Onitsha Market appear here fully digitized and
      annotated to exemplify styles of expression found in this intriguing form of
      African popular literature. They are part of a unique collection of 101
      pamphlets from Onitsha now held at the Spencer Research Library at the
      University of Kansas.
