Chernoff, John M.:
Hustling Is Not Stealing: Stories of an African Bar Girl - edition reliée, livre de poche

ISBN: 9780226103501

[ED: Hardcover], [PU: UNIV OF CHICAGO PR], The prospects of a sixteen-year-old West African girl with no money, education, or experience might seem pretty depressing. But if she's got a hell of a lot of nerve and a knack for finding the funny side in even the worst situations, she just might triumph over her circumstances. Our heroine Hawa does, and she did. In the 1970s, John Chernoff recorded the story of her life as an "ashawo," or bar girl, making a living on gifts from men and her own quick wits, and here presents it in "Hustling Is Not Stealing," one of the most remarkable "autobiographies" you will ever encounter.What might have been a sad tale of hardship and exploitation turns instead into a fascinating send-up of life in modern Africa, thanks to Hawa's smarts, savvy, and ear for telling just the right story to make her point. Through her wide-open and knowing eyes, we get an inside view of what life is really like for young people in West Africa. We spy on nightlife scenes of sex and deception we see how modern-minded youth deal with life in the cities in villages and we share the sweet and sometimes silly friendships formed in the streets and bars.But mostly we come to know Hawa and how she has navigated a life that few can even imagine. The first of two funny, poignant volumes, "Hustling" starts with an in-depth introduction by Chernoff to Hawa's Africa. From there the book traces her remarkable transformation from a playful warrior struggling against her circumstances to an insightful trickster enjoying and taking advantage of them as best she can.Part coming-of-age story, part ethnography, and all compulsively readable, "Hustling Is Not Stealing" is a rare book that educates as thoroughly as it entertains.
