Kweku Sai is dead. A renowned surgeon and failed husband, he
succumbs suddenly at dawn outside his home in suburban
Accra. The news of Kwekuâ€™s death sends a ripple around the
world, bringing together the family he abandoned years
before. Ghana Must Go is their story. Electric,
exhilarating, beautifully crafted, Ghana Must Go is a
testament to the transformative power of unconditional love,
from a debut novelist of extraordinary talent.
Moving with great elegance through time and place,
Ghana Must Go charts the Saisâ€™ circuitous journey to
one another. In the wake of Kwekuâ€™s death, his children
gather in Ghana at their enigmatic motherâ€™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 recoveredâ€”until, in Ghana, a new way
forward, a new family, begins to emerge.
Ghana Must Go is at once a portrait of a modern
family, and an exploration of the importance of where we
come from to who we are. In a sweeping narrative that takes
us from Accra to Lagos to London to New York, Ghana Must
Go teaches that the truths we speak can heal the wounds
