Item description for The Woman who Ate Python and Other Stories by Sammy Oke Akombi...

A collection of six thought-provoking stories, four of which were award-winning-stories at the 1990 literary contest of the national Association of Cameroonian Poets and Writers (APEC). The stories are set in different localities in Africa and Cameroon in particular. The author in a lucid manner explores the theme of women lib- the African way in the lead story. Ebenye, the protagonist, representing the sharp-witted African woman cannot understand why she should cook food without tasting of it.

The other stories tackle themes of corruption, poverty, alcoholism, endurance, love and more.
