Read full description of the books:



"It is time to commence the mental shifts for admittance to yet another irrational world of adults and their discipline."

The closing lines of this childhood memoir made me smile. What a mistake to underestimate the rationality of children while overestimating that of grown-ups! To a child, the grown-up rules and routines, their ideas and dogmas, seem overwhelmingly crazy. The pedagogical value of forbidding shoes in a school remains a mystery, both to the young boy about to change schools yet again on the very last page of this account, and to the reader, who also has to bid farewell to the magic of this very special childhood with a father called Essay (S.A. - how I would love to change my initials!), and a mother called Wild Christian, just to name the closest relatives in Aké. The sheer variety of cultural and natural influences is a brilliant manifesto for human crosscultural learning and understanding.

I have long been an admirer of Wole Soyinka's poetry and plays, and his childhood memories fully explain how he developed the wit, intelligence and empathy to create them.

A noble Nobel!
