Descrizione

Richard Horatio Edgar Wallace (1875-1932) was a prolific British crime writer, journalist and playwright. His stories show all the attitudes of their time - colonial and condescending. However, the stories are well constructed and the light they throw on imperialist attitudes is very interesting. A beach read. This story is funny, silly. Bones has the knack of getting into trouble - and exasperating his chief, captain Hamilton! These are witty, humourous adventures of the innocent Lieutenant Tibbets, "Bones" as he is known to his colleagues,in British West Africa as lieutenant of the Houssas.
Set in colonial times, these are stories that bring up a vivid imagery of the child-like natives and their imperialist bosses: co-existing in an uncomfortable state of uneasy peace...
