Gods Bits of Wood (African Writers Series)

God's Bits of Wood - Ousmane Sembène, Francis Price If anyone ever asks what use unions are, give this book to them. The nearest equivalent I could think of were the kaleyard Scottish novels where hard lives were put down on the page and you can feel how tough each day is. It's not a pretty novel, despite some beautiful writing here and there, but it is very much worth reading.
