Summary

An Eternity in Tangiers tells the story of a teenager named Gawa on his journey to emigrate from his hometown, the imaginary African capital of Gnasville, to Tangiers, a waypoint on his journey to Europe, where he hopes to escape the economic, political, and social suffering that plague his home country. Ivorian author Titi Faustin and Cameroonian illustrator Nyoum Ngangué tell this contemporary African story from an African perspective, countering the exoticism and stereotypes of classics like Hergé's Tintin in the Congo and offering an intimate account of one of the sociopolitical tragedies of our time.
