"West African Development Work" means 16 months in the Peace Corps (the author didn't even finish her term of service). I don't resent Charles writing a memoir of her Peace Corps years, she's not the only one to try and cash in on culture shock and self-involvement. I object to her academic pretensions. I ordered this book because I thought it was written by someone with experience in "west african development work". What a joke. We learn that Togoans are good dancers and Africa agrees with Ms Charles. She loves the way she looks!

I concede the author is likeable. If she had marketed her book for what it is--- a memoir of a short period in her life--I wouldn't be grumbling.
