Review

"Travellers Gather Dust and Lust collection is a mixed bag of goodies worth taking home. Mainoo approaches old African issues with a touch of éclat and freshness, and dissecting modern ones with poetic panache and subtlety; showcasing him as a young tennis player with style and class. The reader does not wait for his stirring “dust” to settle, but “lust” secretly for more of what might possibly flow next from his pot of ink!"
