520    Foreign Gods, Inc. tells the story of Ike, a New York-
       based Nigerian cab driver who sets out to steal the statue
       of an ancient war deity from his home village and sell it 
       to a New York gallery. Ike's plan is fueled by 
       desperation. Despite a degree in economics from a major 
       American college, his strong accent has barred him from 
       the corporate world. Forced to eke out a living as a cab 
       driver, he is unable to manage the emotional and material 
       needs of a temperamental African American bride and a 
       widowed mother demanding financial support. When he turns 
       to gambling, his mounting losses compound his woes. And so
       he travels back to Nigeria to steal the statue, where he 
       has to deal with old friends, family, and a mounting 
       conflict between those in the village who worship the 
       deity and those who practice Christianity. A meditation on
       the dreams, promises, and frustrations of the immigrant 
       life in America; the nature and impact of religious 
       conflicts; an examination of the ways in which modern 
       culture creates or heightens infatuation with the "exotic,
       " including the desire to own strange objects and hanker 
       after ineffable illusions; and an exploration of the 
       shifting nature of memory, Foreign Gods, Inc. is a 
       brilliant work of fiction that illuminates our globally 
       interconnected world like no other.
