Unexpected Joy at Dawn by by Alex Agyei Agyiri PDF Download

Unexpected The Commonwealth Writers’ Prize recognized Joy at Dawn with a commendation for Best First Book in the Africa Region. “In the beginning of her story, Mama began, “I arrived to Lagos from Ghana.” This was fifteen years ago. Since I was barred from entering the United States as an immigrant, I departed for Nigeria. Ghana’s government has mandated that all non-citizens who are currently residing there obtain proper documentation for their statuses. You see, my great-great-grandparents moved to Ghana many years ago and considered it home. As for why, it could have been because the opposition party at the time exaggerated to ridiculous lengths the idea that aliens were wreaking havoc on the country, or because the government at the time blamed its own ineptitude on us “aliens.” It was hard to start anew, and it was much worse to find out that we weren’t welcome in the country we had grown to think of as our home.” The Ghanaian orders of “alien compliance” issued in 1970–1971, which were intended to force all non-ethnic Ghanaians, so-called illegal immigrants, to return to there — as specified — “homes,” were the logical and terrible conclusion to a story of migration, identities, and lives undermined by cynical and xenophobic politics. The story alludes to issues that are deeper in significance to the politics of race and migration in the twenty-first century.

The Ghanaian orders of “alien compliance” issued in 1970–1971 were intended to compel all non-ethnic Ghanaians, so-called illegal immigrants, to return to there — so stipulated — “home.” This is a story of migration, identities, and lives eroded by cynical and xenophobic politics taken to its logical and terrible conclusion. Thus, the novel alludes to issues that are more fundamentally important to the politics of race and migration in the twenty-first century. The Commonwealth Writers Prize recognized Unexpected Joy at Dawn as a Highly Commended Book in the Best First Book Prize, Africa Region category.
