  • Abrokyire Nkomo

    For many Africans, the dream of travelling to Europe or America represents a burning lifetime ambition that they would do anything (well, almost) to achieve. So what is it really like out there? What is the story behind the rosy images of the west that are beamed to Africa on television, in movies and in the glossy magazines? What is the reality behind the grim stories we hear at times from our friends and relatives abroad? Just how hard, or easy, is it out there? This book is a collection of a number of articles written by the author and seeks to address these issues. Written in a conversational style, it is an attempt to provide an interesting, witty, yet serious insight into the good, the bad and the ugly sides of life abroad, and raises several issues that should engage the attention of the contemporary African whether at home or abroad.

  • Chocolate And The Blue Sky: Why Shuji Kwame is Coming to Ghana (Hardcover)

    Age Range: 8 – 12 years

    Chocolate and the Blue Sky recounts fond memories and experiences that a Japanese family had when they hosted a Ghanaian, Mr. Chris Kog Feruta-Benee. Feruta-Benee was then on a training programme in Japan in 1999.

    The book was originally written in Japanese some 15 years ago by the author, Kaoru Horigome, whose young daughter, referred to as Shuji in the book, was close to the Ghanaian and asked many questions so that she could understand the Ghanaian culture.

    The author admitted that the time her family spent with the Ghanaian, fondly called Chris-San, meaning Brother Chris, left a lasting impression on her. She learnt to appreciate the importance of taking pride in one’s country, show love for one’s family and be fair to all.

  • FaceOff With The International ‘MP’

    Face-Off With the International ‘MP’ is a compilation of short stories, drama, different purposed letters, and jest, all garnished with an unusual but perfect mix of satire, wit and logic. The book walks readers through the experiences of the only ‘Member of Parliament’ representing a virtual constituency. The book brings to life issues in politics, romance, educational and career experiences both home and abroad, and short memos – files that the International ‘MP’ deals with 24/7. The right dose of laughter, the fluidity of Nkrumah-Boateng’s unmatched imagery, the apt description of everything Ghanaian plus the solitary enjoyment of his entitlement as the only untenured MP combine to make this book a must-read.

    I introduce to you a reverently irreverent writer who pulls no punches, wears no kids’ gloves, bars no holds and suffers no fools gladly. There is not a topic that Rodney is shy to address, and frontally and bluntly too. Anan Anan Ankomah, Managing Partner, Bentsi-Enchill, Letsa & Ankomah

    Rodney glides you along on a momentum of choleric rhetoric and suddenly explodes your mind into an amusement park of satire, laced with intelligent and exciting lines of literary mischief. Jason Tutu, Research & Development Expert

    Nkrumah-Boateng uniquely mixes truth and poetic satire: his wit, crisp humour, eloquence and fluid writing style, and the heretical elegance with which he makes his points, made you want to kick something…Little wonder a major radio station mistook his satirical narrative as fact, and serialized it on radio! Kofi Bentil, Lawyer/Vice President, IMANI

    Rodney’s writing always leaves me wanting more. Dr. Victor Bampoe, Former Deputy Minister for Health

  • Hardly Working: A Travel Memoir of Sorts

    “Zukiswa has mastered the art of writing a travel memoir. Through engaging prose she takes you on a journey — which she seamlessly intertwines with her innocent childhood memories — through Africa, Europe and then back to Africa. Even better she is doing part of the trip with her family which is unchartered territory: an African family exploring their own continent by public transport for adventure’s sake. What a way to bond.” — Sihle Khumalo, author of Almost Sleeping My Way to Timbuktu, Heart of Africa and the best-selling Dark Continent, My Black Arse

    Ten years after her first book was published, Zukiswa Wanner leaves her Nairobi home on an adventure-filled road trip with her partner and son. Travelling by road to the southern most country in Africa, she gets stranded in a border town in Malawi; finds herself in the midst of a protest against bond notes in Zimbabwe that shows her that Mugabe isn’t the force that he once was. And while dealing with immigration officials from Uganda to Ukraine, she learns what it means to carry an African passport. Wanner deals with the politics of the nations she considers home as well as the politics of literary festivals and writing with the same touch of humour that has been her signature since her first book — The Madams.
