Description

Accra, Ghana, the 1970s. In the streets, marketplaces and crowded houses of this sprawling city, an unforgettable cast of characters live, love and try to get by: an idealistic professor, a beautiful young witch, a wide-eyed student, a corrupt politician, a healer and a man intent on founding his own village. Through their stories, and those of the living, breathing city itself, Kojo Laing's dazzling novel creates a portrait of a place caught between colonialism and freedom, eternity and the present.

'The finest novel written in English ever to come out of the African continent' Binyavanga Wainaina
