Paul Carlucci Reviews Ghana Must Go by Taiye Selasi

Ghana Must GoVerdict: carrot

Estranged from his children, pining for his ex-wife, and atypically barefoot in the dream home he designed himself, Kweku Sai, the prodigal surgeon pride of Ghana, dies of a heart attack. This happens in the first tightly coiled sentence of Taiye Selasi’s debut novel Ghana Must Go, and then continues to happen over the next 90 pages – a staggering, fragmented introduction that launches the book’s big themes of family, loss, migration, and beauty.
