Pauper, Brawler and Slanderer (Paperback)

Amos Tutuola

-  

Vivid, funny, wise and hugely imaginative, Amos Tutuola's Pauper, Brawler and Slanderer cleverly combines universal myth with a range of inexplicably changing human emotions.

All forced to embark on journeys of no return, leading to incidents and adventures in classic Tutuola style, the leading characters involve themselves in a ploughing competition for the hand of the beautiful Popondoro, and the reign of Pauper and Slanderer in the town of women is inevitably a brief one.

Penned with Tutuola's quintessential children's tale-esque charm, the My Life in the Bush of Ghosts author expertly exhibits his heavily metaphorical and brilliantly unique writing style. A great introduction to Yoruba folk tradition.
