Librairie D+Q presents Edem Awumey launching Mina Among the Shadows

Last week's launch of Mina Among the Shadows was a splendid evening full of insight and thoughtful conversation! Author Edem Awumey along with translators Phyllis Aronoff and Howard Scott, and H. Nigel Thomas met virtually as we welcomed Awumey's third novel translated into English to the scene.

Having worked together on Awumey's previous novel - Descent Into Night - Phyllis and Howard jumped at the opportunity to translate his work once more.

Follow photographer Kerim on his search for his once lover and muse, and discover a West Africa teeming with life. Watch the full launch and check out the book below!
