Tales from Different Tails: a review – by Qouphy Appiah Obirikorang

“Her tongue was sweeter than the honeycombs of Babylon and her tales were more intricate than those of legendary Kwaku Ananse”…
If anyone can paint a vivid image with words, breathe life into a collection of alphabets, create a vivid imagination in one’s mind with intricately and well woven tales brewed in the Ghanaian soot-coated aluminum cooking pot; then it’s no other than our very own Nana Awere Damoah.
An Engineer by trade and a Writer by celestial configuration, Nana Awere Damoah’s latest work “Tales From Different Tails” is an embodiment of class, style, humor, sarcasm, truth, knowledge, religion, self-realization and inspirations.
From tales such as “October Rush” to “Kojo Nkrabeah”, words are perfectly strung together in the right octave keeping the reader stuck to every word unconsciously, with bated breath awaiting the flip of the next page.
Nana Awere Damoah’s style of writing is impeccable; waxing his stories with no efforts; lacing each line with enough pun, humor and anecdotes that will even make the humor-deprived father-of-ten beam proudly with smile knowing that there’s hope for the future.
Tales From Different Tails is a must have book for every literature addict, someone looking for a new lease of life in African Literature and the general reading populace.
The Surgeon-General recommends Tales From Different Tails for people with cardiac problems caused by both known and unknown factors as the book is scientifically proven to contain antioxidants and other mineral-rich elements.
