This stunning new book from award-winning African publisher Cassava Republic Press shakes up the travel writing genre.

In this remarkable new work of narrative non-fiction, writer and art critic Emmanuel Iduma reinvents the notion of African travel writing. This meditation on life on the road, and the difficulties found in traversing the continent, is one of very few examples of travel writing on Africa written by an African writer.
In this highly anticipated book, with a foreword by Teju Cole, Emmanuel Iduma takes the reader on a journey across over 20 African cities. Iduma’s evocative prose is interspersed with over 40 striking black and white photographs from acclaimed African photographers, including the famed Malick Sidibe, whom he met in Bamako.
