Since Granta published Selasi’s short story “The Sex Lives of African Girls” in 2011, there has been much anticipation for more of this writer’s work. This spring sees the publication of her first full-length novel, Ghana Must Go. The tale explores more of the author’s Nigerian and Ghanaian heritage, tracing the slow dissolution of a family after the death of its patriarch; Selasi's lyrical storytelling is ravishing, even as it wanders through difficult places.
