Aug 4, 2022, 11:51 AM | Article By: Ali Jaw

Journalist Dawda Faye, judicial correspondent of The Point newspaper, has published his fourth novel entitled “Struggle for Inheritance”.

He is the author of “The Betrayer,”  “Bad Blood” and “The Broken Reed,” which has been reviewed by “The Standard” newspaper.

The book is a story about a young man who goes to the urban area and makes a fortune but messes up his life with a young lady. He returns to his village where his people regard him as a failure. He envies his brothers for their success and takes their lives to inherit his father’s properties. But the wrath of his own action catches up with him.

This novel is another thriller, and breathtaking. It is well planned and written. The narration keeps you reading up to the last page, and the message is clear.

The book is available at Timbooktoo bookshop at D300 per copy.

Journalist Faye has written many short stories for Radio Gambia for its programme, “Tell me a story” while he was a student. He won the Gambia Press Union Best Health Journalist Award in 2011. The Point newspaper also awarded him as one of the best reporters in 2021. The Ministry of Basic and Secondary Education has approved one of his novels, “Bad Blood,” to be used in Upper Basic Schools.

Mrs. Serah Grey-Jonhson is his mentor. She is the one who encouraged him to become a writer. As a token of appreciation, he has dedicated his first novel, “The Broken Reed,” to her.
