It is a better guide to French Colonial Africa, and to racism, than any non-fiction account, whether by African or Frenchman. - The Times Literary Supplement Houseboy is written in the form of a diary kept by Toundi, an innocent Cameroonian houseboy who is fascinated and awed by the white world, the world of his masters. When the head of his mission is killed in an accident, Toundi becomes the "boy" of the local Commandant. In an effort to improve himself, Toundi studies his new world closely---too closely. Gradually his eyes are opened to its realities, and in the end it destroys him.

John Reed lives in New York City. "A Still Small Voice" is his first novel.

Born in Cameroon, Ferdinand Oyono was educated in local schools and in France, where he studied law and administration. Since 1960 he has served in the Cameroonian diplomatic corps. His international reputation for humorous, satiric writing rests on his 1956 publication of The Houseboy, which has been widely translated. The novel, written as a diary of an African houseboy, bitterly attacks French colonialism in Africa.
