Houseboy is written in the form of a diary kept by the Cameroonian houseboy Toundi, an innocent, fascinated and awed by the white world. . . . Both very funny and inexpressibly sad . . . Mr. Oyono's sophisticated wit stings like a mosquito and he underwrites his story with real craftsmanship." Eve Burgess

This book is written in a form of diary by Toundi, a Cameroon houseboy. Toundi studies the world of his masters, and the result is a sad, and sometimes amuzing account of his life.
