A great read, 22 Aug. 2011
I enjoyed both 'The Man of Passage' and 'Bride Price' but 'Man in a Mud Hut' is my favourite in the African Memoir series so far. The book describes how Desmond, more at home in an office in the UK, is forced by various circumstances to adjust to life in an isolated African village for much longer than he intended. Some of the events are amusing, others horrifying but all captivating, I found it difficult to put the book down. Another interesting insight into African life over 30 years ago from someone who lived there among the people.
