The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born by Ayi Kwei Armah

This book was recommended by Elin Melchior of Bristol, who says, "This book about
corruption and greed in Ghana shows how the effects of colonialism has spread over entire generations.  His use of symbolism is dense and at times even disgusting but so is this period of human history.  I can only hope as he does that the pain of these generations is moving towards the time when the beautyful ones are born."

This book is available upstairs in the One World Library at Lawrence Memorial Library.
