Funny! I’ve heard great things about The Hakawati. Happy reading.
Thanks! I need to get moving on reading The Hakawati as I’ve already renewed it once from the library and it’s due next week. I’m definitely enjoying it, but I haven’t even reached the part I’ve quoted above yet.
That is certainly an interesting teaser 😛
