MEDIA REVIEWS
" "Letters from Togo "is more than a travel book. From the window of her flat, Blake looks out on bare-breasted women--voodoo novices--gathering palm fronds, while behind her Mahouna brushes her kitchen floor. It is the tension between these two worlds that Blake so painfully and beautifully relates-the African without, the Anglo-American within. We travel with Blake to West Africa. But we also travel to the uncomfortable core of what it means to be an outsider, a "yovo," in a land that is not our own." --Dea Birkett
