In the Xlibris release entitled Money, Where Are You?, author Kwaku Addo presents a typically humorous and insightful collection of short stories woven with the Ghanaian cultural values and a real sense of community. This book is available in both paperback and hardback formats, sold for $15.99 and $24.99 respectively.
In the title story, a man named Ozoak becomes rich, only to wish he were poor and free from the ravages of affluences. Other stories like The Value-Added Woman and No Man is an Island will give the readers a real thrill.
The writer’s simple style, the vivid illustrations, the import of every story as a potential transformer of the reader’s perception of life, and the emotional responses the stories elicit make the collection ideal for schools and libraries of all kinds.
