As Irène Assiba D'Almeida notes, Liking is "a Cameroonian artiste in the fullest sense of the word; poet, playwright, theater and movie actress, novelist, essayist, painter, jeweler, and researcher. She stands out among African writers, male and female alike, for the diversity of her oeuvre, as well as for the innovative nature of her writing . . . She has been very critical of contemporary African society, where she can see no plan for the future . . . Therefore, she has devised a personal plan of cultural revival in which art and ritual play a pivotal role" (p. 225).
