A stunning debut from a fresh Nigerian literary voice: a mesmerizing, deceptively simple, Kafkaesque narrative, resonant of the myth of Orpheus and Eurydice and lightly informed by the life of Nigerian musical superstar Fela Kuti—a powerful story of love, sacrifice, and courage.
 
The day a stained brown envelope reaches Taduno from his homeland, he knows that the time has come to return from exile. Arriving full of hope, the musician discovers that his people no longer recognize him and no one recalls his voice. His girlfriend, Lela, has disappeared, abducted by government agents. He wanders through his house in search of clues but all traces of his old life have been erased. As he becomes aware that all that is left of himself is an emptiness, Taduno finds new purpose: to unravel the mystery of his lost life and find his lost love. But soon he must face a difficult decision: to fight the power or save his woman, to sing for love or for his people.
