Product description

Synopsis

The first volume of Wole Soyinka's acclaimed series of autobiographical works. This vivid, exuberant book is the author's account of his childhood in colonial Nigeria. Soyinka's rich and evocative prose tells the tales of his schooldays and adventures, recollecting fears and dangers, and always sensitive to the surprises of childhood. Days full of discoveries, excitement, the presence of spirits and the tribal rituals of his colourful family - including his father - are lovingly recalled.
