Written in a grave and simple style, it... reveals its author as a fine writer ruminating on a past already turning into legend.'"<br>The New Statesman<br><br><br>"'Mr Amadi writes with speed and shapeliness and exhilaration... a lovely and dignified picture of a society not only still ruled by gods, but governed by a great delicacy in human relationships.'"<br>The Guardian
