    And don't forget to read the sequel "A Dream of Africa". It starts with his return to Guinea. Sorry I haven't got a copy of it. Heck girl, do public libraries in Toronto have African-Carribean/black sections at all ? Why not try college/university libraries ?

    Good luck.

    The only thing I do in my school library is waste time b4 my next class, aka put on my laptop and listen to good music while I curse off the rest of the world via WWW.

    Ok, fine I'll check the library, but am afraid of books!!!!!

    You know whats funny, I had this dream the other day, of myself writing a book about my SCHOOLS in Nigeria and it was SOYINKA quality, the words were nicely arranged, you know the story flowed and then MY BLOODY PHONE RANG!!!!!!!!

    I really didn't like "A Dream of Africa" as much as African Child. It got a little too political. But "African Child" (I've seen it titled "The Dark Child") is definitely a must read.
