About the Book

The telling of stories is a tradition in itself within the Liberian community. It is a skill, one reserved for a special class of people, storytellers. It is a culture within a culture. In many tribes, only trained people or the elderly told stories for educating or entertaining purposes. Anyone can tell a story, but only few can tell it well. This book follows in that regard. The stories range from personal to traditional and folklore. Within each story, the author embeds local customs, traditions and belief systems of various Liberian tribes. Readers will identify with characters on many levels because of the realness of their situations. 6 For A Dozen is a collection of stories from Liberia. It is an important addition to the growing body of Liberian literature written by Liberian authors.
