This Earth, My Brother

R285.00

Rooted in the African oral tradition, This Earth, My Brother paints a picture of post-independent Ghana through two distinctive narratives. In the first strand, we find Amamu, a young lawyer struggling to come to terms with his place amongst the new Ghanaian elite. Frustrated by the debauchery of his peers, and the misery engulfing the country, he decides to leave. During his journey across Europe, Amamu is gripped with a different kind of spiritual alienation – one that he can’t run away from.

This Earth, My Brother

Bridging the gaps between Amamu’s story are chapters of rich prose poetry that tell an allegorical tale of new Ghana. From religious suffering to mermaids, Kofi Awoonor lyrically captures the inner workings of a man’s disturbed conscience and the conflicting realities of Ghana’s independence.
