AN AFRICAN IN GREENLAND

Author: Tete-Michel Kpomassie, James Kirkup (Translator)

A chance encounter with a picture book about Greenland inspires the young Kpomassie to embark on a life-changing journey that would last ten years. Leaving his native Togo, he travels to the Ivory Coast, Senegal, Mauritania, Paris, and Copenhagen before reaching his ultimate destination. The author's distinctly African voice and perspective create a narrative that is refreshingly free of Western assumptions and prejudices. Readers witness innumerable culture clashes between the African and Inuit cultures, as well as occasional surprising similarities.
