I have read several books recently that felt like a bit of a chore so the first point to make about The Whistler is that it is gloriously short With the help of generous amounts of white space the publishers have padded it out to 100 pages but it s probably like 60 pages of actual text I m not a fan of short stories and I m usually suspicious of very short novels but this time I was in the mood for it how nice to get a book finished in a couple of short sittingsIt s about a man with an extraordinary whistle except actually the whistler himself hardly appears It s really the story of a village reacting to the whistler s arrival and his whistling has a remarkable effect on people We re in magical realism territory hereThe story is light on plot but strong on atmosphere it s dreamy and wistful and gently funny I guess in the end it might be a tiny bit insubstantial but I found it very likeable And it s nice to read African fiction which isn t about civil war or dictatorship or colonialism important though those subjects are but instead about people s normal desires and concerns on a human scaleHe arrived in October at the same time as the enduring and silent rains of that

natural gift of making a noise as it fell He believed he was in the midst of an intense snow storm and opened his mouth He had never experienced a rain like thisHe put his bag on the steps He looked still with that soaked gaze at the pigeons that surrounded the church They flapped around him alighted n the windows and took to the air again It was only them that made a noise only their noise could be heard Further in the distance was a donkeys retreat It is true gathered donkeys grey fat content and amblingHe went into the church with a small step without making a noise The day was still young and the first mass had already taken place He breathed the air around him felt a delicate religiousness penetrate his lungs and his heart The beauty of the architecture the light filtering through the stained glass windows the morning and the moment the absence of the Padre led him to begin whistling He discovered with the end of the first notes that this was one of the best places in the world for
