This memoir describes Coughlan's life as a young boy in the 1950's, when his parents moved to West Africa, giving him and his brothers unusual opportunities to find out about a different culture. Not only did they live in several different countries of Africa, but Coughlan and his brother also braved an English boarding school, and Coughlan by himself attended a Swiss boarding school. The brothers seemed to be open to friendships with all of the people they met on their travels. Those with an interest in coming of age stories, or in Africa, will find this an interesting read.
