Flaptekst van de roman van de Ghanese schrijver Kojo Laing

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.
