A fictional story whose themes display the wonders, paradoxes and contradictions of how groups labeled as “non-civilized” collide with groups who see themselves as “civilized.”
Las Vegas, NV (PRWEB) September 19, 2014
The desire to shed light on the complex relationship Africa — in general and West Africa in particular — has within its frontier and the western world inspired author N’Dolo to pen the story of “The Geuleui’s Dynasty” (published by Xlibris).
This fictional tale follows a mixed child who is an orphan raised by his maternal grandmother in the United States. He grew up curious and wondering about his African father. His maternal grandmother tried to crush his curiosity about his father unsuccessfully. As an adult, he decided to finally find out about the African side of his family. His journey to West Africa serves as the foundation of this interesting story.
“This is a book of ethnic originality and readers get the opportunity to embark in a raw and pure story writing style,” N’Dolo promises. “The reader will be not only touched emotionally, but will embark in a journey of wonders.”
“The Geuleui’s Dynasty” is primarily a fictional story whose themes display the wonders, paradoxes and contradictions of how groups labeled as “non-civilized” collide with groups who see themselves as “civilized.” Fictional as it is, the real issues it tackles opens readers’ eyes and raises awareness about the concerns of other countries.
