You Must Set Forth At Dawn
It has been an eventful life, which Soyinka recounts as a practised storyteller blessed with total recall. He guides us skilfully along the twisting road he has travelled - at times alone, at times in company, with some momentous greetings, ambushes and leave-takings along the way. No surprise that his personal demiurge is the many-faceted Ògún, Yoruba god of the road and creativity.
An amazing brick-size book, You Must Set Forth at Dawn is by no means a straightforward read; but go with the flow and you will be rewarded with marvels. At his best, Soyinka is nuanced and lyrical, a master of gripping drama, compelling imagery and forceful character sketches, leavened with a ready wit. This is the most engrossing and unusual memoir I have read for ages.
