      ‘Tales of the Tikongs’ by Epeli Hau’ofa. This collection of twelve short stories is a brilliant satire of life in the Blue Continent. In each tale, the famous Tongan-Fijian author takes you on an unforgettable journey to Tiko – a tiny island somewhere in the Pacific Ocean – where you get introduced to a vast array of colourful characters, who are forced to deal with a sudden wave. suggesting the Tikongs as a new 'chosen people'; instead he utilizes the Hebrew experience as a reference for other minority cultures similarly challenged and compromised by the threat of some form of diaspora. It seems appropriate, then, that Tales of the Tikongs often resembles a missing book of the Old Testament, set in the Pacific and.

      Throughout the twelve sketches in Epeli Hau’ofa’s Tales of the Tikongs, significant questions and issues are proposed, probed, and prodded. Many of these elements, however, are hidden behind the exaggerated antics of the Tikongs and Hau’ofa’s cunning humor and satire, which give the reader an opportunity to not only ask, “What is Hau’ofa’s point of view?,” but more importantly. Although this little book is an easy read, it is chock full of insight into colonization, decolonization, reconstruction, the new elite, and everything involved it takes to "build a national identity." This book is a keeper. Not only will you want to share it, you will want to read it again and again.5/5(1).

If you took Terry Pratchett, Robert Aspirin, Carl Hiaasen and Joseph Heller and mixed them all together, then put them in traditional Tikong dress, you’d have half an idea of how funny this book is.
