Fear, hostility, discrimination. No sense of security. Life is simply nonsense!
And both are influenced by oral traditions, embellishing their tales with repetitions and non sequiturs as if they were sitting at a campfire with their readers. Koffi is not yet a Tutola.

About This Item
Nevertheless, I am grateful to say that through the book I saw the greatness of love. Not only how love strengthened friendships, but also how with understanding love lightened up dark times. It almost seemed like a way of survival. Something that shattered my heart is the honesty with which John Michael tells his story. It is so unbelievable and touching. He exposes his feelings and emotions and presents us his vulnerability.
