I was wondering when there would be some controversy around here.
Some books to put on your reading list:
Oedipus and Akhenaten: Emmanuel Velikovsky (Yes, the guy who wrote Worlds in Collision.)
Moses and Monotheism: Freud.
Dweller in Truth: Naguib Mahfouz.

You're more orthodox than you like to think Oscar.

The African reference in this and, perhaps, all my work is deliberate but subliminal.
Ancient Egypt was probably the first creole society.
Creolism is the promise that lies beneath the threat of globalism.
My passion for creole culture began years ago when I saw Muddy Waters, on a grey afternoon in Manchester, play the blues for English bank clerks and art students.....the blues came down like showers of rain.
