Ghana Must Go


Item Details

Kweku Sai is dead. A renowned surgeon and failed husband, he succumbs suddenly at dawn outside his home in suburban Accra. The news of Kweku's death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before. In the wake of Kweku's death, his children gather in Ghana at their enigmatic mother's new home. The eldest son and his wife; the mysterious, beautiful twins; the baby sister, now a young woman: each carries secrets of his own. What is revealed in their coming together is the story of how they came apart: the hearts broken, the lies told, the crimes committed in the name of love. Splintered, alone, each navigates his pain, believing that what has been lost can never be recovered--until, in Ghana, a new way forward, a new family, begins to emerge.

A beautifully written and heart-wrenching story about family relationships and regret. This book had me completely mesmerized!

Told from the point of view of most of the members of this family that has been fractured by the immigrant experience, this book reminded me of "Cutting for Stone". Not only is the father a doctor from Africa working in the US, but the loving but difficult family relationships resonate in the same way.

yes, interesting to read. Not as bad (NY Times, March 8, 2013), and not as good (The Economist, March 16, 2013).
