A unique and epic novel describing the African Diasporic immigrant experience conveyed through the protagonist's immersion in American college life, which leads to his alienation from home. Kwakye covers substantial bredth of narrative, reminiscent of Ben Okri's The Famished Road (Vintage, 2009) - from the transformation from youth to recollections of memories of his birthplace, Ghana, which fade as years pass - only to be disturbed by the passing of his uncle in a coup d'etat.
