A Long Way from Douala

A Novel

by Max Lobe Translated by Ros Schwartz

“Redolent with the sights, sounds, and smells of modern Cameroon, this is in fact a classic road trip, a Homeric quest in which our two young heroes may not discover what they were seeking but learn a great deal about themselves, each other, and the state of Africa. A jostling, poignant tale, it left me hungry for more.” —Michela Wrong, author Borderlines and It’s Our Turn to Eat

“[Max Lobe’s] eye is as compassionate as his characterizations are rich. I only wish this novel had been twice the length. You are in for a treat.” —Patrick Gale, author of Take Nothing With You
