|Once again, Nana Awere Damoah has a splendid achievement to his name in this, his second book of stories, articles, aphorisms and poetry. His style is graphic, entertaining and indisputably Ghanaian. Whether he is lauding the efforts of his countrymen, exhorting everyone to thoughtfulness and faith, deploring the politicisation of local issues or making astute comments on his schooldays, he is frank and ‘in your face’.
Seriously funny, amusingly instructive and liberally Christian, Damoah offers insights from many sources and hope for the future for his pioneering homeland. He has, like some clever spider in folklore, spun a glittering web of words in our path, trapping many tasty ideas. These we can consume at our leisure, through the gates of thought.Nana Awere Damoah is a reflective thinker and engineer, a passionate believer in the good of man, determined to leave his thoughts for posterity. He is a Ghanaian Chevening alumnus educated in Ghana and the UK, and author of Excursions in my Mind and Tales from Different Tails.
