“This charming, vivid and poetic book captures the poignancy of immigrant life and all the unresolved pain of Africa's relationship with its former colonial powers.”—Michela Wrong

Salie lives in Paris. Back home on the Senegalese island of Niodior, her football-crazy brother Madické counts on her to get him to France, the promised land where foreign footballers become world famous. The story of Salie and Madické highlights the painful situation of those who emigrate. It is a moving account of one of the great tragedies of our time.

About the Author:

Born in 1968 in Niodior, Senegal, Fatou Diome moved to Strasbourg in 1994. She has taught at Strasbourg University and currently presents a cultural programme on the televison station FR3.

Review:

?Rich in incisive and humorous insights about existing at the bottom of the food chain? Morning Star ?Entertaining? her writing has undeniable power and wit? Independent ?Diome offers many wide, poignant and sometimes inspired epigrammatic observations that skewer a very real sense of immigrant experience? Big Issue ?This lyrical account of the bittersweet nature of emigration is half poetry, half novel? What?s on in London
