'Meditative, gestural, philosophic: a brave reinvention of the immigrant narrative ... Unprecedented' Taiye Selasi 'Adept, admirable, important' Guardian Maya grows up in Germany in the shadow of her beautiful, volatile mother: a whirlwind, spinning stories of the family's former glory. Then Kojo arrives. Kojo has a way of talking about Ghana, and empire, and history - and for the first time, Maya understands that her parents are exiles. But fate intervenes, and the cousins are separated. Returning to Ghana years later, Maya's homecoming sets off an exorcism of her country's darkest demons. In this destruction's wake Maya realises her purpose: to tell the story of her mother her cousin, their land and their loss, in her own voice.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Meditative, gestural, philosophic: a brave reinvention of the immigrant narrative, unapologetically inward-facing, seductively lyric ... Unprecedented -- Taiye Selasi
Adept, admirable, important * Guardian *
I read this novel very slowly. I didn't want to miss anything ... It is a rich, beautiful book and when I got to the end, I wanted to start again -- Chibundu Onuzo
A cultural juggernaut * Harper's Bazaar *
Hugely readable ... Dizzying ... Intriguing and engrossing ... A classic coming-of-age narrative ... Deeply concerned with Ghanaian history and the psychic dislocations of exile * Daily Mail *
It is a rare kind of woman who enjoys a project so vast that it's practically unfinishable, but Nana Oforiatta Ayim, a Ghanaian writer and historian, never quits what she has started * Vogue *
One of the foremost architects of the contemporary African arts scene * Okay Africa *
