Stories of longing and desires. The author uses the metaphor of pain didactically to force a deeper look at the social ills hoping to inspire some while rekindle new hope in others. Palesa’s story is hauntingly beautiful evocation of one woman’s fight for others right to exist. Rites of Passage is a boys’ tentative start characterized by experimentation off-set by the tragedy of absent fathers. The desire for relationships is as strong for teen males as it is for females, they long to stay attached to their parents and significant adult role models for as long as it is necessary, and these connections have the power to help them discover their identity and develop into men. Echoes of my years is Taboney’s journey through life, it is a reflection on a life lived whose glory is yet to consumated.
