Explorations in Sights and Sounds
Tales from Cameroon is Richard Bjornson's translation of two collections of allegories, anecdotes, and short stories by the Cameroonian writer Rene Philombe. Originally composed in French over a twenty year period between the late 1950s and the late 1970s, these fifteen works reveal the human greed, jealousy, and blindness to its own destructive behavior which Philombe believes divides Cameroonians among themselves.
