Fortunes of Wangrin
Amadou Hampate Ba
Price: $ 17.95

Wangrin is a rogue and an operator, hustling both the colonial French and his own people. He is funny, outrageous, corrupt, traditional, and memorable. Just as Wangrin is a representative character at a time of transition, Hampaté Bâ's book bridges the chasm between oral and written literature. The stories about Wangrin are drawn from traditional oral sources, but through the power of the artistic imagination of this gifted writer, the materials have been transformed into something wonderful and new.

Amadou Hampaté Bâ (1901-1991) was a distinguished Malian poet and scholar of African oral tradition and precolonial history.
