Reader Reviews

Of men and ghosts
This book makes for interesting reading. It deals a lot with African culture, and for people in the Diaspora, it is a nostalgic glimpse of life as it used to be for many- indeed, of life as it still is ,for many more, back home. It contains a lot of interesting anecdotes and insights into a rural, fast dying way of life. It is a kind of metaphor chronicling the erosion of a traditional way of life, with new, modern ideas.
