‘A captivating story about a mixed-race British woman who goes in search of the West African father she never knew . . . A beautiful book about a woman brave enough to discover her true identity’ REESE WITHERSPOON

Anna is at a stage of her life when she’s beginning to wonder who she really is. She has separated from her husband, her daughter is all grown up, and her mother – the only parent who raised her – is dead.

Searching through her mother’s belongings, she finds clues about the West African father she never knew. Through reading his student diary, chronicling his involvement in radical politics in 1970s London, she discovers that he eventually became the president (some would say the dictator) of a small nation in West Africa – and he is still alive. She decides to track him down and so begins a funny, painful, fascinating journey, and an exploration of race, identity, and what we pass on to our children.
