Search Sweet Country
A brilliant novel from Ghana portraying a crucial period in the nation's history.
Kojo Laing is renowned Ghanaian poet and novelist. His first two novels - Search Sweet Country and Woman of the Aeroplanes - were first published by William Heinemann in the 1980s. Acclaimed at the time by critics such as Robert Fraser and Adewale Maja-Pearce, the Heinemann African Writers Series’ republication of these seminal works comes at a time of renewed interest in Laing, who has been a major influence on a younger generation of writers. Other Laing titles previously published by the Series are the poetry collection Godhorseand the novel Major Gentl and the Achimota Wars.
