This is a collection of intriguing short stories from the African continent. Several of them describe a development or a clash of civilisations as in the short story A Life in Full in which the mother keeps worrying about her son not being inclined to marry and have kids. To her it is a disaster and to the rest of the world a consequence of the increasing individualism fighting off the collectivism which used to be essentially to the survival of mankind.
Another story Happy Ending is about Dama who uses a charm to get rid of his wife's lover. The charm works but as it turns out the lover is almost as important to Dama as the wife.

Compared to the collection of 2009 - Work in Progress - these stories do contain more progress, less prostitution and a lot more hope. The issues are still existential but somehow the characters are frequently left with a choice.
