The content of this book is not different from the title. It is a collection of letters – letters to Serwaa. They are intriguing love letters from a young man to a young woman with whom he intends to spend the rest of his life. She is his wife-to-be, but certain issues must be settled before they take the irrevocable oath.
The topics are on serious issues that can bind or break relationships. The letters are mainly the products of the writer’s creative mind. Some are triggered by real life situations. But the reader will find it difficult to distinguish between the two. The reason is not difficult to find. A reader who has been in a relationship or marriage can identify with almost every situation in those letters.
Manasseh uses the simple and conversational tone to convey deep messages. He has not failed to spice them with witty African proverbs that give readers the mature flavour that must accompany the thought-provoking pieces. Those who are still battling with what to look out for in a lasting relationship will find a helpful guide in this book. It will be of help to the man whose mother still decides how he should relate with his future wife. The lady who is yet to discover that good boyfriends do not often make good husbands will find useful lessons in Letters to My Future Wife. The couple whose marriage is yet to be blessed with a child will find something comforting in this book. And those who find pleasure in reading for relaxation will find this book therapeutic.₵50.00₵50.00Quick View

“I have no wish to play the pontificating fool, pretending that I’ve suddenly come up with the answers to all life’s questions. Quite that contrary, I began this book as an exploration, an exercise in self-questing. In other words, I wanted to find out, as I looked back at a long and complicated life, with many twists and turns, how well I’ve done at measuring up to the values I myself have set.” —Sidney Poitier
In this luminous memoir, a true American icon looks back on his celebrated life and career. His body of work is arguably the most morally significant in cinematic history, and the power and influence of that work are indicative of the character of the man behind the many storied roles. Sidney Poitier here explores these elements of character and personal values to take his own measure—as a man, as a husband and a father, and as an actor.
Poitier credits his parents and his childhood on tiny Cat Island in the Bahamas for equipping him with the unflinching sense of right and wrong and of self-worth that he has never surrendered and that have dramatically shaped his world. “In the kind of place where I grew up,” recalls Poitier, “what’s coming at you is the sound of the sea and the smell of the wind and momma’s voice and the voice of your dad and the craziness of your brothers and sisters…and that’s it.” Without television, radio, and material distractions to obscure what matters most, he could enjoy the simple things, endure the long commitments, and find true meaning in his life.
Poitier was uncompromising as he pursued a personal and public life that would honor his upbringing and the invaluable legacy of his parents. Just a few years after his introduction to indoor plumbing and the automobile, Poitier broke racial barrier after racial barrier to launch a pioneering acting career. Committed to the notion that what one does for a living articulates to who one is, Poitier played only forceful and affecting characters who said something positive, useful, and lasting about the human condition.
Here is Poitier’s own introspective look at what has informed his performances and his life. Poitier explores the nature of sacrifice and commitment, price and humility, rage and forgiveness, and paying the price for artistic integrity. What emerges is a picture of a man in the face of limits—his own and the world’s. A triumph of the spirit, The Measure of a Man captures the essential Poitier.₵60.00Quick View
