Description

For thousands of years, Gods enjoyed full dominion over the lives of men. As prayers dwindled, Gods felt their power cut.

Modupe, cursed with extraordinary beauty, draws the unwanted attention of the Greek and Yoruba gods. Her son Demi, half Nigerian-mortal, half Olympian child, is bestowed with powers; one of them manifests in the game of basketball. When he unknowingly sparks Zeus' wrath, Modupe tries to protect him from the capricious whims of the gods.

Inua Ellams (An Evening With An Immigrant, Barber Shop Chronicles) writes this contemporary saga that weaves poetry with storytelling in a majestic, chaotic journey across mythologies that transports us from a tiny village in Southern Nigeria to the further reaches of our galaxy and beyond.
