About Don

 

 

 

 

This is an eloquently woven tapestry of ethnographic fiction. Don Mitchell displays what the power of creative imagination can do by blending Nagovisi myths with Elliot Lyman’s venture as an anthropologist into the cultural universe of the Nagovisi. In a candid and fictive prose Don demystifies ethnography as a quest to understand the exotic other into what it really is – a fictional narration of human subjectivities.  Readers with a taste for textual flair and flavour in exotic human encounters should find the volume an entertaining read.
