An interesting narrative about the writer's early childhood years in a village in western Nigeria. Soyinka is clearly a great writer, and while this book doesn't have a lot to hold it together it never lags. Most interesting about Soyinka's childhood, perhaps, is the cultural and religious syncretism of his environment.
