Summary

"This charming, vivid and poetic book captures the poignancy of immigrant life and all the unresolved pain of Africa's relationship with its former colonial powers."-Michela Wrong Salie lives in Paris. Back home on the Senegalese island of Niodior, her football-crazy brother Madicke counts on her to get him to France, the promised land where foreign footballers become world famous. The story of Salie and Madicke highlights the painful situation of those who emigrate. It is a moving account of one of the great tragedies of our time.
