African Literature

The Birth of a Child in a Fishing Boat by Yemi D. Prince is redolent with creativity, weaving folklore and faith into literary and historical memoir. It is a brilliant synthesis of collective historiography and personal autobiography. While dense with episodes of the author's fascinating life in literature, Yoruba worldview sits at its heart, and spiritual, folkloric, creative and literary philosophies provide the text its backbone. Yoruba identity is disclosed convivial and shared. This is expansive knowledge and excitement. (ISBN 9789956763146)
