Not sure about the title. A strange little book of contrasts. On the one hand a vivid and lively sense of an altogether different life, and I would have liked a lot more detail. Coupled with a list of deaths or near-death accidents that reads like a horror movie - fire, snakes, wagons, trains - it's a lethal world out there, one I could do with less. And what about this: 'I do not wish to write what I saw one day when I went for the milk, but I will never forget it.' Eh?
