The end note to this passage could not capture better the mood of men stuck in these dreadful, inhuman conditions, "The suspense in Purgatory is a real terror if it resembles in any measure this eternal waiting, waiting". But the ones that did make it are definitely worth the re-read. Falola's memoir is far more than the story of one man's childhood experiences; rather, he presents us with the riches of an entire culture and community-its history, traditions, pleasures, mysteries, household arrangements, forms of power, struggles, and transformations.

But lest we hastily surmise that writing in a white coat would make us a Joyce or drowning pages in purple ink a Woolf, Johnson prefaces her exploration with another important, beautifully phrased disclaimer: That power to mesmerize has an intangible, almost magical quality, one I wouldn’t dare to try to meddle with by attempting to define it.
