In this book little Benny meets his aunt's ghost, finds the stash of money she has secreted away, fights demons intent on evil doings on this plane, and much more. And it's all true, honest.
OK, this is not really a well written book. Text is presented in block paragraphs. The writing is choppy, full of exclamation marks, and sprinkled with flights into morality. But I love it because this is exactly how people in Asia tell these sorts of tales.
I'll bet that this is one of those books foreigners who live in Asia love to give to visitors because it is undeniably a great insight into local culture.
If you see it, dip into it. It's guaranteed irresistible.
