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"...

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).
