Ghana Must Go

Taiye Selasi

About the book

A renowned surgeon and failed husband, Kweku Sai dies suddenly outside his home in suburban Accra. The news of his death sends a ripple around the world, bringing together the family he abandoned years before. Ghana Must Go charts their rally to one another and, along the way, teaches us that the truths we speak can heal the wounds we hide.

In a sweeping narrative that takes readers from Accra to Lagos to London to New York, it is at once a portrait of a modern family and an exploration of the importance of where we come from to who we are.

“Irresistible from the first line - 'Kweku dies barefoot on a Sunday before sunrise, his slippers by the doorway to the bedroom like dogs' - this bright, rhapsodic debut stood out in the thriving field of fiction about the African diaspora.” The Wall Street Journal
