The protagonist of An Eternity in Tangiers is a teenager named Gawa, who leaves his native city, the imaginary West African capital of Gnasville, hoping to find a better life in Europe, where he hopes to escape the turmoil of his home country. Following a journey fraught with dangers and betrayals, Gawa is stranded in the Moroccan city of Tangiers, just in sight of his final goal, where he begins to tell his story, one now familiar to hundreds of thousands. Ivorian illustrator Faustin Titi and Cameroonian journalist Eyoum Ngangue tell this contemporary story from an African perspective, offering an intimate account of one of the great sociopolitical tragedies of our time.
