It could have been a question at his birthday for his noble guests. Which book written by the Master do you appreciate most and for what reason?

Some would like his poetry, searching for a room in England during the colonial days.

Some one else would vouch for this play with Jero, the selfstyled preacher.  

 The American critic Tony Chadd Ford prefers the childhood memoir of Soyinka, Aké.

I enjoy reading about Africa. New books. Old books. By African writers. By non-African writers. Novel. History. Travel. Biographies. Autobiographies. Politics. Colonialism. Poetry.
