James Murua Reviews Eat, Drink and Blame the Ancestors by Ndumiso Ngcobo

Eat, Drink and Blame the AncestorsVerdict: carrot

He is able to weave real life experiences like years of being a vegetarian (Chops and Changing), the death of a pet (RIP Superman This Man’s Best Friend) and hoarding underwear (Those Old Drawers in My Cabinet) to devastating effect. The beauty about it is that he is able to show a mirror to our own lives using comedy and anyone who lives in a large African city will be familiar with the dynamic of the cultural interspersed with the different needs within that environment.
