More than a folk tale,
By A Customer
This review is from: The Palm-Wine Drinkard (Paperback)
I bought the Bangla translated version of this book from a second-hand bookstore in Bangladesh. That one had biography of Amos Tutuola and a brief introduction about African folk tale, particularly the unique style of delivering the story by talking, acting and dancing. When I started reading the story itself, I found a class of literature that was completely different from East and West. This is not merely a folk tell, the writer has got unimaginable way of thinking in his brain. Read the first paragraph and you will find you are shocked. You can't stop reading until it is finished.
