display_description"In a crumbling apartment block in Luanda, Angola, impoverished families hoard memories to survive a corrupt regime. Odonato-nostalgic for the days of socialism-searches for his son whose life as a petty criminal he laments. As his hope drains away, Odonato's flesh becomes transparent and his body increasingly weightless. Transparent City confirms Ondjaki as one of Africa's major writers."--
