Between Ghana’s capital Accra and the remote mud brick villages of Mali he encounters many mishaps including passing out in taxis and being threatened with the devil, but also becomes intoxicated by the unpredictability, vibrancy and joyfulness of African life. It’s an experience that literally gets into his blood. Based on a hand-written diary, this is a coming-of-age story set during a tumultuous, hot summer. The work is full of dramatic events in a rapidly changing country... “Things happened, things that seemed to matter and things that left a lasting impression. They are experiences that, in many different ways, have shaped my way of thinking and haunted my mind ever since.”
