Kwasi Edward Michael Dankwa - Eddie Signwriter to his clients - is
a twenty-year-old painter of murals and billboards in the city of
Accra, Ghana, who is buffeted by forces beyond his control and
understanding as he is swept up by the passions and machinations of
others. Struggling with a forbidden relationship, banished from
school, held responsible for the death of a notable woman in the
community, Eddie flees overland to Senegal and then, illegally, to
France, determined to find a new life for himself among the
immigrant communities of Paris. Following him across magnificently
rendered African lands into the precincts of Paris, Eddie
Signwriter gives us a spellbinding tale of rootlessness and desire,
of disgrace and redemption, of politics both personal and global,
of art and love.
