Talk to the Hand by Lynne Truss
Rate this book

I grew up in Kenya at roughly around the same time as the author (mid-seventies to late 80s), so much of the book is so familiar. It's like swapping stories with an old friend--except only one person is doing the talking. Though the book is sometimes...more
