Rastapherian’s Tales

A collection of short stories, narrated in a lively and effortless manner, these delve into the life of the urban child in various everyday settings. The tales are built around interesting episodes like organising a birthday party, encounters with visiting cousins and uncles, plotting a “dare” with friends to have a go at a neighbour’s Harley, being touched by the warm gestures of friends and relatives... In many ways, the world of the urban child that emerges is — reassuringly — like it ever was, despite the frenzied consumer image that marketeers would have us believe. Many of the stories come with powerful messages, subtle and at times even oblique.
