Product description

A "buoyant" and "rapturous" debut novel ("The Wall Street Journal") about the transformative power of unconditional love Electric, exhilarating, and beautifully crafted, "Ghana Must Go" introduces the world to Taiye Selasi, a novelist of extraordinary talent. In a sweeping narrative that takes readers from Accra to Lagos to London to New York, it is at once a portrait of a modern family and an exploration of the importance of where we come from to who we are. A renowned surgeon and failed husband, Kweku Sai dies suddenly at dawn outside his home in suburban Accra. The news of his death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before. Moving with great elegance through time and place, "Ghana Must Go" charts their circuitous journey to one another and, along the way, teaches us that the truths we speak can heal the wounds we hide.
