Description - Sankofa: 'A fantastic novel about a woman's search for her identity' SEFI ATTA by Chibundu Onuzo

A funny, gripping and surprising story of a mixed-race British woman who goes in search of the West African father she never knew, by award-winning author Chibundu Onuzo.

'A fantastic novel about a woman's search for her personal, familial and national identity' SEFI ATTA

Anna grew up in England with her white mother and knowing very little about her West African father. In middle age, after separating from her husband and with her daughter all grown up, she finds herself alone and wondering who she really is. Her mother's death leads her to find her father's student diaries, chronicling his involvement in radical politics in 1970s London. She discovers that he eventually became the president - some would say the dictator - of Bamana in West Africa. And he is still alive.

She decides to track him down and so begins a funny, painful, fascinating journey, and an exploration of race, identity and what we pass on to our children.

'Wonderful. Poignant and powerful and so timely and the beautiful ending had me in tears, reminding me to look within as well as without for my answers' STELLA DUFFY

'A hugely compelling novel about identity and the stories we tell about ourselves' ANNA JAMES
