If you have ancestors who grew up in the rural South and were fortunate enough to hear their stories as a child, the tenor of this book might remind you alot of those stories. It sure did for me. Fantastic read, and a little bit off the 'modern' grid while still giving off the vibe of being written in the year 2015 (which it was)

This book explores one African neighborhood via the owner and inhabitants of one house. The novel begins with the house's origin story and ends with its demise. In between the two events, the reader meets various characters and learns a lot about African beliefs and attitudes. An interesting read.
