Written by Samuel Osaze and published in German and English by Akono Verlag, Leipzig Germany, The Strange Moon of Yenagoa/ Der Falsche Mond von Yenagoa  focuses on contemporary Nigerian issues such as -- environmental degradation and governmental neglect in the Niger Delta region, police brutality and youth unemployment.

Importantly, it explores the need of using poetry as a bastion for preserving cultural patrimony, more especially for those ethnic nationalities  threatened by extinction.  This feat in    
The Strange Moon of Yenagoa  is greatly realized in the performative poems inspired by the beautiful oral tradition, festivals, folklore and songs of the Esan/Edo people.
