Bitter Leaf is a richly textured and intricate novel set in Mannobe a world that is African in nature but never geographically placed At the heart of the novel is the village itself and its colourful cast of inhabitants Babylon a gifted musician who falls under the spell of the beautiful Je I would've given this a 3 star rating because of how hard I had to force myself to get into the story but the writing was so good and her expressions are so poetic they're nearly flawless I wasn't expecting this sort of story at all; it reminds me of One Thousand Years of Solitude in its magical realism I wish time had been given to the story of the twins though it felt like there was to be said about them and their relationship Glad I finally got to read this
