In every city, there is one area which remains defiantly and stubbornly averse to change or development. One such area is the municipality of Accra is James Town, with Bukom as its centre - the epitome of the black neighbourhood of the old order.

Meet Ataa Kojo, who is satisfied to have won a gold tiepin for "twenty-five years of loyal service" to a European trading firm, and his family.

At his age, he has not done badly at all. He would be completely satisfied with a modern toilet in his home, but the City Council says he needs a permit to "undertake construction works"...

BUKOM was the first novel by Bill Marshall. This novel won the Ghana National Book Award for the young writer in 1979. Over the decades, his writings have been wide and diverse spanning film and television, radio, the press and books.

Among his published books are Novels; Brother Man, The Oyster Man, Uncle Blanko's Chair;
Plays: Shadows of an Eagle, Stranger to Innocence, Son of Umbele, The Crows and Other Plays, Asana.

Bill Marshall is a fellow of the Ghana Association of Writers (GAW) and patron Pan African Writers Association (PAWA).
