Home » Born in a Second Language

In this book, languages are a means of conjuring an existence, of full expression and of defining who one becomes. Home exists on a spectrum: Botswana, Zambia, Ghana, one’s body, music, mother, mother tongue etc. Akosua Zimba Afiriyie-Hwedie’s book is an exploration of African and female identity; navigating what it means to be in-between identities, languages, and homes; and how those in-between spaces brush up against each other, and are in themselves, a home too.
