“Camouflage” by Selassie Mensah, averagely, is a good book—good in a way that gets you to read on, no matter how much you might want to put it away. It has an awesome cover too so that is a plus.

Since times immemorial the human race has been dragging its feet from the clingy […]
What’s bulging when you look at the gravestone of a deceased loved one? Is it the date of birth? Or the date of death? The date of birth, evidently, marked the start of an exciting journey (or not) for the deceased, and the date of death, just the culmination. So what is actually sticking out or calling for attention isn’t the date of birth nor the date of death but the dash (—). The dash is a summary of the life this person lived.
