An enthralling journey down memory lane and up the future's road, this study of history, politics and the future reaches into the heart of human ambition and its hold on the collective destiny of any people. The fate of minorities, the quality and ultimate purpose of elections, the place of truth in human relations: these are some of the core concerns of this unique narrative. Although handled against the background of recent political events in Cameroon, these concerns are actually more representative of the African and indeed the human condition globally than they are particular to any specific country or context. The beauty and strength of this work lies just as much in what it says as in the manner in which this is done. G.D. Nyamndi is a critic, playwright and novelist of some repute. He is the author of Tussles, a collection of plays, and of two novels, Babi Yar Symphony and Dogs in the Sun. He teaches language and literature at the University of Buea in Cameroon, where he is also Head of the Department of English.
