Lost boys is a compilation of twenty-one poems on boyhood (not exempting the females); aimed at sharing the writer’s struggle as well as lighting others path. It is the writer’s first offering to the world.
Adedayo Adeyemi Agarau said:
This first offering is a basket full of love and survival. Each poem opened me up and gave me back the image of how I dipped myself into water. This is what poetry should do: show you how you emerged. The poet has not even started, yet, the book lies promising.
Laolu Poe Alani said:
It is not a return to the pages of dictionary that Bamigbola Silas provokes with this carefully worded work. Instead, he guilds us to the recesses of the hearts of men where the questions, struggles and yearnings of boyhood still have roots.
Wale Ayinla said:
Lost Boys is a distinct representation of belongingness and concern for intimacy. It is a mild voice of affection- poetry at best.
