Prophet of Zongo Street

Ghanaian writer Mohammed Naseehu Ali, whose short fiction appeared in the New Yorker earlier this year, has a collection of stories out now, titled The Prophet of Zongo Street. It’s about a group of residents on a fictitious street in Accra who grapple with issues of family and faith. The L.A. Times‘ Merle Rubin reviews (and likes) it: Humor — and a dose of skepticism — about isms.
