Chin Ce’s first
work of prose fiction
takes the form of
a folk adventure in which the young hero of the story, Yoyo, observes,
comments, and partakes in a modern African drama of life set in a
neglected community called Koloko. The young ones lacking role models
covet the fortunes of looters of public wealth and try out their own hands
at stealing from the community at every opportunity. Gradually Yoyo is
seen to transit to maturity but the story of broken
seems to trail his
development even as
the society of
Koloko stagnates through the years.
Very interesting stories in this readable collection include Coming to
Koloko, The Talk of the Town, Old Wives' Quarrels, The Chicken Theft and A
Joker from Jah-My.
