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.
