Kofi Aidoo, a native of Ghana who emigrated to the United States in 1978, became a college-level teacher of English, and is currently researching and writing full time, has completed his new book “Of Buds and Weevils”: a tale set in a remote Ghanian village that resonates with universal human themes.

When the wealthy Kani learns that his sole daughter has been raped in the bush, his plans for her marriage into royalty are thrown into disarray. In his efforts to avoid the humiliation and disgrace of a scandal, Kani discovers that there are forces beyond his control that shape his affairs. The story skillfully conveys the texture of everyday village life in Ghana and exposes the vulnerabilities of Kani defending his reputation.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, Kofi Aidoo’s book brings the social, political, and interpersonal concerns of its characters to life in this quintessentially African tale.

Readers who wish to experience this potent work can purchase “Of Buds and Weevils” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play or Barnes and Noble.
