Everything you need to know about the author Kojo Laing

Kojo Laing was a Ghanaian novelist and poet, known best for his works that explore postcolonial African realities. His key products are his works of literature, including novels like “Search Sweet Country” (1986), “Woman of the Aeroplanes” (1988), “Major Gentl and the Achimota Wars” (1992), “Big Bishop Roko and the Altar Gangsters” (2006) and his poetry collection, “Godhorse” (1989). Each of Laing’s novels showcases vibrant use of language, incorporating Pidgin English and African proverbs, while uniquely examining the interplay of the magical and the mundane in African societies. However, whilst the books like “Search Sweet Country” and “Woman of the Aeroplanes” rely heavily on combining elements of fantasy and reality, “Major Gentl and the Achimota Wars” takes a more science fiction approach to narrate a tale of war. His singular poetry collection “Godhorse” adds a distinct layer to his product line as it presents meticulous, rhythmic expressions of societal reflections. Despite the differences in genre and thematic focus, each of Kojo Laing’s works offers insightful perspectives on African postcolonial condition.
