Slow Red

by Ondjaki (Author), Stephen Henighan (Translator)

In a crumbling apartment block in Luanda, Angola, impoverished families hoard memories to survive a corrupt regime. Odonato—nostalgic for the days of socialism—searches for his son whose life as a petty criminal he laments. As his hope drains away, Odonato’s flesh becomes transparent and his body increasingly weightless. Slow Red confirms Ondjaki as one of Africa’s major writers.
