Audi Adam, a hard working teacher of English, leads a life unfettered by the dispensable aspects of native Hausa culture that his wife, Dijengala Maikano, finds so alluring as to risk infringing his rights, especially concerning polygamy.
Matters reach to a head when Audi proposes to Uwani Lallan, leading to Dijengala's deserting her marital home.
Audi, who sticks to his bow and arrows, finds a mother lode in feminine disappointment by writing a novel after a novel.
Life Afresh tackles the theme of gender warfare, as characterized by strict male adherence to religious precepts and passionate female adherence to the antics of native culture.
