The best books on Ghana: Part of The Guardian’s World Library series
 More about the book!

Pushpinder Khaneka, the author of Read the World: A Country-by-Country Guide to the Best Books on the Global South, has compiled a literary tour of Ghana for The Guardian.

The list comprises The Beautyful Ones Are Not Yet Born by Ayi Kwei Armah – an ‘acerbic debut novel’ that ‘excoriates President Kwame Nkrumah’s government for the graft and extortion that were rife in 1960s Ghana’ – Ama Ata Aidoo’s Changes: A Love Story – the ‘provocative and engaging tale of a young woman in modern-day Accra who challenges sexism and social mores’ and My First Coup d’Etat by John Dramani Mahama – ‘an intimate, insider’s account’ of Ghana’s bleak post-colonial period.
