When it comes to book reviews, I always engage into a sort of writing trance about the literature that rocks my world one way or another, whether it is about a poetry book, a short stories volume or an endless novel.
And it seems that these days, time is filled with a kind of exotic literature that I am mostly keen on: the African literature.
A few days ago, I had the honor to be published in a worldwide journal coming from the bilingual Songsoptok Journal in India, among other 24 voices. Inside this publication, I represent the Romanian voice focused on an extremely interesting theme: “Back to the roots”.
I remember during college, I studied a significant part of a very dear to me type of literature – African-American literature. Among the most important figures I used to read and analyzed was Toni Morrison, an exceptional woman and a proverbial artist, after which famous screenings have been made. Although I wrote a 1st version of the review 10 years ago, now, in 2017, part of my critical analysis is published by a special bilingual diary (Bengali/English) in India. Therefore, the “reviews” category is “occupied” by my personal analysis of the novel “Sula” – the black community (you can read it here https://quarterlysongsoptok.blogspot.ro/2017/07/ana-lucretia-nedelcu.html).
On the 1st of January last year, I was also making a blog post dedicated to the African literature itself (here https://ananedelcu.wordpress.com/2016/01/01/a-readers-opinion-on-african-literature/), again engaging in a part of the worldwide literary creation that I really adore and often read. And not only because of my personal passion for the African culture, but also because this kind of ancient vibes offer an amazing variety of life lessons filled with wisdom and beauty.
Starting with the above analysis, this present review represents a continuation of last year`s foray into this section, it presents and it comments on the wonderful series of short stories written by a famous author and illustrator: Kingsley Nwabia. If in 2016 was about the Nigerian folktales and other stories – 1st volume and one of the pocket books, The city that disappeared, today I want to present another wonderful wisdom “pill” that will certainly catch your interest. The Panda Pizza-Men it`s a short story, part of the “Paths to wisdom” series, that talks about success throughout entrepreneurial knowledge and skills. Have you ever wanted to open a business but you lacked motivation or purpose? Have you ever encountered difficulties in becoming an entrepreneur but you didn’t know why? Then this book may offer you some answers. What is it about this book that makes it so great? Just like the other ones from the series, each of them is a textbook and most certainly a guide itself into several important aspects of our lives and existence. These little books offer everyone, from the kids up to the grown-ups instructions on why and how things happen.
The Panda Pizza-Men is about Bob, a guy in struggle and left with no motivation after he had had difficult times in finding success in his different initiatives and proceeds. While his thoughts were bound to renounce, he finds himself in the middle of a special encounter, a chance for him to understand the meaning of real success. The opportunity comes from the owner of a special pizza parlour and the results give him a fresh new start along with a new visionary thinking.
The wonderful aspect is that these precious pocket books are imperishable and universally valid, being filled with ancient and immortal wisdom.
The Panda Pizza-Men isn`t only about an average entrepreneur, but about a social entrepreneur, the business of the future: how can we make profit by believing, promoting and supporting a social cause?
In less than 30 pages, here we have a lesson on what entrepreneurship means and how we can find success into this venture. Not only that the book creates a magical world in which you can find yourself as a reader, absolutely fascinated about the language used, the atmosphere created and the wonderful illustrations of the author, but it also gives you answers and the power to start up.
While reading the book, you most certainly discover an amazing writer coming from the heart of Africa to teach you things you may never heard of.
