Description

This fascinating debut by Karen Lord-a retelling of a Senegalese folktale-earned starred reviews from Publishers Weekly and Booklist and won the Frank Collymore Award. When Paama finally leaves her gluttonous husband, she attracts the attention of the undying spirit Patience, who gives her Chance's Chaos Stick as a gift. But Chance insists that only he should wield the stick's powers. "This is one of those literary works of which it can be said that not a word should be changed."-Booklist, starred review

Professional reviews

"In this distinctly African novel, full of magical realism, Lord applies scientific principles in key moments to explain how magic works. When Paama leaves her husband, who is a fool and a glutton, she attracts the attention of the undying ones--the djombi--who present her with a gift that allows her to manipulate the subtle forces of the world. Robin Miles uses accents, pacing, and intonation to depict the variety of characters, talking insects, spirit spies, and more. Reading with seriousness and mischievous good humor, Miles provides a steady, clear presentation. Paama's tale is both poignant and funny. Listeners will also enjoy its thought-provoking message.
