My Life in the Bush of Ghosts by Amos Tutuola My Life in the Bush of Ghosts, Amos Tutuola's second novel, was first published in 1954.
 
It tells the tale of a small boy who wanders into the heart of a fantastical African forest, the dwelling place of innumerable wild, grotesque and terrifying beings.
