Summary
This stunning and powerful novel is about a young African's international odyssey of self-discovery. Kwasi Edward Michael Dankwa--Eddie Signwriter to his clients--is a twenty-year-old painter of murals and billboards in the city of Accra, Ghana, buffeted by forces beyond his control. Struggling with a forbidden relationship, banished from school, and held responsible for the death of a notable woman in the community, Eddie flees overland to Senegal and then, illegally, to France, determined to find a new life for himself among the immigrant communities of Paris. Following him across magnificently rendered African lands into precincts of Paris, where the city of light shows a darker aspect, Adam Schwartzman gives us a spellbinding tale of rootlessness and desire, of disgrace and redemption, of politics both personal and global, of art and of love
