Palm Wine Tapper and The Boy at Jericho is the diary of a woman’s journey from the nature-rich countryside and the red-sanded desert to the Lego-like city. Written in the narrative folklore genre of Nithy’s native culture, it sketches the passage from a child’s world, mystifying and exploratory, to the inner-complexities of womanhood. The collection is a painting, an open fire that invites you into the circle to share an adventure vividly portrayed in words.
