Behind God's Back by Boima Fahnbulleh

'The shooting had gone on for most part of the dawn.' Look down through the eyes of Angela Benson and her husband Joseph, a high official in an unstable government. Look up through the eyes of Jaja and his mother Ma Hawa, their servant. And Boima Fahnbulleh will show you the tensions created when power play expressed in Western terms has to wrestle with a society where the legacy of sectarianism, tribal loyalties and the goblin of political primitivism refuse to be swept under the carpet. For 'Behind God's Back is about a coup. An African coup. And Boima Fahbulleh knows what that means.
