by Edson Burton.
Bandele refuses to be enslaved by the ghost men who've appeared in his village. He chooses to die rather than be taken with his lover, Amara, on a slave ship.
But the gods do not abandon him. An extraordinary journey across the sea, through generations of creatures, is about to begin. Will he and Amara ever be reunited?
A magical story of reincarnation from poet and playwright Edson Burton, specially commissioned for Bristol Food Connections festival.
