Search Sweet Country

Author(s): Kojo Laing

Fiction

Winner of the Valco Fund Literary Award for Fiction and the Ghana Book Award.

Bringing the city to life in dizzying, lyrical prose, Laing weaves a story filled with bizarre and often melancholy characters- an idealistic professor, a lovely young witch, a wide-eyed student, a corrupt politician and his hack sidekick, a business-savvy young woman, a healer, a bishop and a crazy man intent on founding his own village. Their collective narratives create a portrait of a country where colonialism is dying, but democracy remains elusive. Search Sweet Country is a timeless, near-forgotten gem by a virtuosic writer, as necessary now as when the book was first published. Like Joyce's Dublin and Dickens's London, Laing's Accra brims with both lush specificity and universal relevance.
