This is an amazing collection by Kari Dako, a Norwegian who has lived and worked in Ghana for many years. In fact one can conclude she is Ghanaian just by reading her book. The book was published in 2002 by Sub Saharan publishers. Even though all stories have an African background, some do focus on Ghanaian society others take us to other countries on the continent while the rest are about our visitors (white foreigners) and how we relate to them and their “strange” behaviors (Bare-Chested Men and Waiting at the Bank). As noted, the themes do vary and the book is quite fascinating, definitely a book one can read many times over.
