Scrolls of the Living Night

Scrolls of the Living Night (an epic poem)

"A masterly epic in verse form in which the poet demonstrates unrivalled technical virtuosity, leaving the impression of fluidity but also of tautness and discipline." Prof. Eustace Palmer


"Kwakye's imaginative tale takes place in Ghana but could just as easily be set in the United States or any country beset by corruption…Rhyming quatrains move the story along with wit and grace, and despite the tragic outcome, Kwakye's writing contains exuberant humor…and cutting insights into human nature… A darkly humorous modern take on the fleeting triumph of money, corruption, deceit, and evil." — Kirkus Reviews
