Review: My Life in the Bush of Ghosts

User Review  - Emily Hughes - Goodreads

If I hadn't read Tutuola's Palm Wine Drinkard, I probably would have given higher. Tutuola still has all his magic, rawness and grit, but this one is lacking, the stories aren't as vibrant and the journey is less gripping than its predecessor. Still love the guy though, worth the read Read full review
