The Nigerian writer Amos Tutuola wrote his much debated novel The Palm-Wine Drinkard in 1953. The story is based on Yoruba myths. The book, written in Pidgin English, deliberately broke with spelling rules and thus had a significant influence on later generations of authors in West African countries.
